“This report has four sections that cover some of the biggest opportunities for health over the next two decades. The first section identifies health as one of England’s primary assets through analysing the links between health and the economy, the local health environment, social health and how the maintenance and treatment of health could be experienced in 2040. The next section of this report identifies the potential health gains and reduction in health inequalities that could be possible with a ‘prevention first’ approach. The third section of this report explores emerging technologies and their potential impact on health promotion, protection and treatment. This section concludes by discussing the ethics of big data, emerging technologies and the fundamental role of mutual trust between the public and health institutions.  [The last section] explores current and future uncertainties in health and identifying the potential of futures thinking methods to inform and ‘future-proof’ health policy.”
