THIS IS NOT A CHAMPS EVENT

Warrington is hosting the UK Healthy Cities Network (UKHCN) meeting on 13 July and the invitation is extended to other public health colleagues in Cheshire & Merseyside (C&M).

The theme is Participatory governance for health: the role of business.  Cities from across the UK and C&M will get together to share learning and good practice. Warrington will present some case studies to prompt the discussions, then there will be group work on how to engage more with the private sector and how to target growth to the more disadvantaged.

Please let Muna Abdel Aziz, Acting Director of Public Health for Warrington, know if you would like to attend mabdelaziz@warrington.gov.uk

Liverpool and Warrington are already members of UKHCN. The network are keen to expand to additional members to enhance the benefits of national collaborations. There is an officers group and a councillors group from each city in the network.
