Health and wellbeing

Poor health and wellbeing was a key challenge in our region prior to the Covid-19 pandemic. Health inequalities between poor areas and more affluent parts of the region were becoming more pronounced and long-term sickness was identified as the largest contributor to economic inactivity. The pandemic reinforced these issues as well as placing unprecedented pressure on our NHS and healthcare services. 

Sheffield Hallam is one of the largest healthcare training providers in the UK, and home to the world-leading Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre so we are well placed to help address this fundamental challenge. We will increase our healthcare training provision to help boost the NHS workforce, integrate our research and innovation with local health services, and collaborate with communities to tackle these challenges.
