World-leading Research With Impact

What are the aims of our research programmes?

Every research area across LHP aims to improve the health, social and economic outcomes across Cheshire & Merseyside. The work we carry out at this local level can have positive impacts across the world through knowledge-sharing and collaborative approaches to research. Discover each area of research, and how it is placed within the Life Course Framework below.

Each of our research programmes places their work within the Life Course Framework. As an organisation, we understand the value of the Life Course Framework so that we can further explore the issues that arise from it and address the challenges head-on. By looking at health at all ages and all stages of life we are able to create a more holistic picture of a person's health and create services that respond to those needs.

Starting Well

Starting Well seeks to address what happens in pregnancy and early childhood and how this impacts on physical and emotional health all the way through to adulthood.

Living Well

Living Well addresses a person's physical, mental and social wellbeing throughout their life span and the complications that can arise from these areas being neglected.

Ageing Well

Ageing Well deals with our ageing population and how we can better meet their needs so that people can continue to experience happy, healthy lives as they grow older.
