Discussion points from Liverpool City Region Wealth and Wellbeing Summit

Over the course of 18 months, the LCR Wealth and Wellbeing Programme has invited people to talk about health and wellbeing in or out of work, about the effect of poor health on the economy in the region and the effect of the economy on health. The programme has developed the evidence that poor health in the LCR population accounts for a third of the gap in productivity between the region and the rest of the country and demonstrated that people, in each of the six boroughs, are keen to engage in discussion about what this means and what can be done about it.

On Feb 5th 2020, a summit workshop was held to bring the learning so far into a set of recommendations for economic planning across the city region.  This included an animated video that captures the views of people who are coping with work and being ill. A key feature of the summit was the point that the best ideas will come from keeping people engaged in the implementation of economic planning and that we need to make the economy work for the health and wellbeing of all people because, in return, a healthier population will make for a more productive and inclusive economy.
