Background

Poor air quality is a major public health issue. An estimated 340,000 life-years are lost annually in England due the short- and long-term effects of particulate air pollution. In Cheshire and Merseyside in 2012, 4.4% of all deaths were estimated to have a contribution from particulate air pollution.

As well as directly reducing harm, actions to limit air pollution can have wider population benefits. For example active transport policies reduce vehicle emissions and pollution, and reduce population rates of heart disease and diabetes, together resulting substantial cost-savings.

Cheshire and Merseyside is comprised of a diverse set of environments, including major urban centres, industrial areas, and rural communities. Regional, as well as locally-specific actions will be required to have a meaningful impact for communities.

  • Objectives

The objectives of the CPD event are to:

  1. Provide an up-to-date overview of how air quality affects health, and which interventions can be effective and cost-saving for local authorities
  2. Engage with elected representatives, partners from the private sector to promote engagement with community groups and develop a shared understanding of the need for action
  3. Discuss case-examples of best practice and measured impact from Local Authorities and partners in Cheshire and Merseyside, and other regions of England
  4. Through group work and prioritisation exercises, identify interventions local-authorities can implement
  5. Identify key actions that be taken jointly across Cheshire and Merseyside, and that will support region and national strategy
  • Who should attend?

Chief Executives, Directors of Public Health, Health Protection Leads, NHS England, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Emergency Preparedness Resilience and Response (EPRR), NHS Trust Chief Executives, Local Networks, Emergency Services, C&M Strategic Clinical Network (SCN), Port Health Colleagues, Associate Directors of Public Health (ADPHs), Environmental Health Colleagues
