“2020health is an important and thoughtful contributor to the health debate”

Dr Sarah Wollaston MP, Chairman, Health Select Committee


Sainsbury's Wells Project Steering Group

Oct 25. till Oct 25.

Invitation Only Event

This Well's Steering group meeting formed part of the Sainsbury's Wells project which 2020health is involved with.

The project is assessing the impact of pharmacists on the health and lifestyle of families using practical tools and techniques. This is a year long assessment carried out from November 2011 to November 2012. Ten families with the surname Wells have been paired with ten pharmacists based in ten regional Sainsbury’s stores across the UK. Both the programme and research were sponsored by Sainsbury’s. 2020health has provided a source of health expertise and were engaged as an independent body to evaluate the initiative.

The steering group role is not to influence or direct the challenge in a particular way but rather to act as sounding board for 2020health in terms of its analysis and writing up of the report, providing impartial academic and professional support and advice to the challenge. Representatives include those from Heart Research UK, Allergy UK and Asthma UK.

The project has been featured in various media reports during the course of the year, demonstrating the activities and challenges which the families have been involved with. The official report is due to be launched in February 2013.
