Health and wellbeing governance and devolution in Liverpool

This event is on 27 February 2017 9:30am

This Fresh Thinking event, led by the Heseltine Institute for Public Policy and Practice, will explore the prospects for health governance in the newly devolved Liverpool City Region, bringing together experts and professionals to discuss Liverpool’s changing political landscape.  Facilitated by Professor Rhiannaon Corcoran, Academic Director of the Heseltine Institute and Gayle Whelan, Research Fellow at the Institute of Cultural Capital (ICC), questions to be considered include:

  • What is devolution and what does it mean to you/your organisation?
  • How do you see devolution working?
  • How will devolution affect health governance and what will devolution of health and social care mean?
  • What are the risks/benefits/impacts of devolution, and how do we measure these (methodologies)
  • How do we demonstrate whether devolution is successful, and what does that look like?

The event forms part of a wider research project on health governance and devolution based at the Heseltine Institute, which Gayle is currently supporting on secondment from the ICC. A key point of interest from the ICC’s perspective will be the role and value of arts and culture in changing models of health governance, including the potential for integrated health and social care, linked to our research on social prescribing. The ICC’s Head of Research Kerry Wilson will be participating in the event, along with cultural research partners including National Museums Liverpool.
