Play Proposal to BHMA 23.5.14
Scenario in 2020: Channel 4 News flash showing Jon Snow interviewing community leaders in Brighton and Hove in 6 years time.
1 Jon: I am in Brighton and Hove, which has been just been declared the healthiest city in England, having come top of the public health league tables, as its citizens here collectively have the lowest rates of alcoholism, smoking, obesity, diabetes, teenage pregnancies, and suicide, which have halved in the last 5 years, together with health inequalities.
With me are community leaders and service users. Letís start with you, Dr Tom Scanlon.
You are the director of public health in Brighton and Hove , a post you have held for over 20 years. Congratulations, on this result. How did you do it?
