A vision for Liverpool: Putting people’s health first

By SALUS User Experience Team 19 Dec 2023 0

Liverpool sits on an intricately folding landscape, in a magical estuary, enjoying the benefit of historically well-formed townscapes. It’s also a city of many firsts. This imagery captures the imagination of residents and visitors alike, inspiring and invoking a sense of meaning.


However, these are just the raw materials of a successful place. The true measure is in the people, their wellbeing and the life choices they enjoy. These are the real challenges facing Liverpool and many other cities around the world.

‘Putting people’s health’ first describes this new era in the city’s history. The ‘how’ of change will be through co-production and consistent ‘right practice’ for Liverpool and its wider region. We’re renewing Liverpool’s historic status as a health-creating human city.
