What are we doing?

Led by Matthew Ashton, Director of Public Health for Liverpool, supported by Steve Knuckey (St Helens) and Sharon McAteer (Halton) and the Cheshire and Merseyside Intelligence Network. 

The network brings together representatives from each local authority, the Champs support team and Public Health England and aims to manage collaborative intelligence across Cheshire and Merseyside and to support priority work areas as identified by the collaborative. In addition to local collaborative work, the intelligence network oversees the commissioned intelligence programme on behalf of the Directors of Public Health.
