The performing and visual arts sector contributes more than £5.4 billion a year to the UK economy. The most recent statistics show that this industry accounts for around 5.6% of total UK jobs. This meeting will explore how the health of performers, and the self-employed more broadly in the context of the gig economy, can be better supported. The keynote speaker will be Professor Aaron Williamon, Professor of Performance Science, Royal College of Music and Imperial College London. BBC Radio 4 newsreader Mr Zeb Soanes will give a performer’s perspective and Mr Colin Thomas, Chief Medical Officer at the BBC will discuss emerging occupational health issues in broadcasting, including meeting the health and work needs of freelance workers. Dr Rob Hampton, Public Health England Medical Champion for Work, will offer thoughts on the self-employed and the gig economy from a public health, occupational health and GP perspective.

Psychiatry in dialogue with society – distinguished lecture

28 March 2019

During this lecture Sir Michael Rutter, Professor of Developmental Psychopathology at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London, will present the concepts and findings on nature-nurture interplay as they apply to mental disorders. There cannot be any meaningful subdivision into ‘good’ genes and ‘bad’ genes. The idea that the level of heritability sets limits on what can be modified is misleading, as is the partially wrong claim that the genetic findings on traits in the general population are the same as those applying to clinically defined extreme groups.
