Coastal health data workshops: registration open

13 June 2022

In 2021 the Chief Medical Officer looked at health in coastal communities, and suggested that the available data on health and wellbeing were poor. He recommended that this should be addressed.

Eastern Arc is taking the first steps towards doing this.

On 19 July and 21 July it will host two workshops at which stakeholders in NHS trusts, local authorities, charities and third sector organisations will be invited to discuss and identify the common and specific issues they face around data.

The workshops will take the format of ‘open space’ sandpits, as have been used recently by UEA (in consulting on its civic mission) and Essex (in identifying interdisciplinary projects).

The events will be followed up by a survey over the summer. Evidence from these three initiatives will be collated and used as a basis for designing interventions in the autumn and winter.

The workshops are free and open to anyone with an interest in or responsibility for collecting, collating and using health data. Both events are the same; you can choose which of the two you want to attend.
