Abstract

Liverpool Public Health Observatory (LPHO) was established in 1990 to provide intelligence to Merseyside Health Authorities (later Primary Care Trusts and now Local Authority Public Health Departments). The work programme for LPHO is now managed by the Cheshire and Merseyside Public Health Intelligence Network, on behalf of the Directors of Public Health. The Intelligence Network identify areas of work based on local priorities and those of the CHAMPS public health collaborative service1. A project lead, usually a member of local authority staff, is identified, and a working group is established – the working group provides expert input into the projects, and a steer to researchers in the University regarding scope and local requirements. Academic support for the projects is provided by the University of Liverpool. When reports are complete, they are uploaded to LPHO’s website, and disseminated widely via CHAMPS to relevant professionals, including relevant leads within the NHS and local authorities, and presented at relevant local, national and international conferences and events. Projects are now evaluated six months after they have been completed. This overview report provides a summary of some of the more recent reports that have been compiled by LPHO, including evaluation findings where these are available, and the impact that LPHO’s work has had on public health practice. An appendix which lists all LPHO’s publications is included at the end of this report for future reference.
