Equitable Place Based Health and Care Overview

The EPHC Theme has a research focus to support place-based approaches to address health inequalities with a vision to ‘support local systems aiming to integrate health and care so that they are able to operate responsively to the needs of people, community and place’.

The 3 C's at the heart of our mission

Our research includes projects centred around air quality and social prescribing. We are also developing a project exploring the role and influence of the voluntary sector (VCFSE) in local integrated health and care systems. The Equitable Place-Based Health and Care theme continues to build on the legacy of the CLAHRC North West Coast Neighbourhood Resilience Programme.

Networking capabilities across local systems

The COmmunity Research and Engagement Network (COREN): COREN is a platform for members to share their knowledge and expertise and learn from each other to support the development, dissemination, and implementation of health and social care research. It is also a supportive space for new collaborations to be promoted and developed. Should you wish to become a member, please fill out the online form.
