Sir Michael Marmot and The Institute of Health Equity (IHE) will present the first key interim Marmot report for Cheshire and Merseyside to the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership Board on 11th January 2022.
The interim report ‘Building Back Fairer in Cheshire and Merseyside: Evidence for action and key approaches’ is the first output of IHE’s work in Cheshire and Merseyside and sets out inequalities in health and the social determinants of health and the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It assesses the role of austerity policies between 2010-20 in driving these inequalities and the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also highlights existing and developing actions and partnerships currently addressing health inequalities.
The contents of the report have so far been used to inform a series of place-based workshops with local authorities in the subregion, which took place with over 350 stakeholders throughout November and December 2021.
Learning from these workshops will be incorporated into the report and a ‘final’ version will be published in the Spring.
