DH’s Reducing Avoidable Mortality Programme team and our stakeholders post here regularly.

We launched Living Well for Longer in April 2014. A huge range of individuals and organisations informed our work and reminded us of the brilliant work being done across the country. We want to generate open discussion about reducing avoidable mortality and capture the actions that are really making a difference.

Please join the conversation by commenting on the blogs, or email us at rpmp@dh.gsi.gov.uk.
