Understanding place-centred public health strategies implemented in a context of financial constraint

This work package (WP4) of Places & communities work stream A (WSA) seeks to understand in depth how local authorities (LAs) develop and deliver place-centred strategies that maximise human and financial resources and assets to tackle social determinants of health and health inequalities in a context of constrained finances. It will elucidate the pathways between these strategies and improvements in health, wellbeing and inequalities, drawing on interpretative and realist perspectives.

Improving methodology for place and community-based public health natural experiments and interventions

This work package aims to provide the methodological underpinning of natural experiments conducted within the Places & communities theme as well the Children, young people & families and Public mental health themes, and, while doing so, also provide new practical guidance for local and national public health practitioners on when (and when not) to conduct natural experiments, how they could be designed, what different methods are available for analyses, and how the results of these place-based natural experiments should be interpreted. Moreover, the new guidance will link natural experiments to recent developments around systems thinking in public health.

The impact of contrasting investment strategies at the local level

Given the heightened constraints on budgets, practitioners in Local Authorities have identified an urgent need for evidence on which investment approaches are likely to be the most effective in a given context in terms of impact on health and reducing health inequalities. Currently this evidence is lacking, and that is why this work package (WP2) aims to address this gap, through the exploitation of natural policy experiments, made possible by the existence of local variation across England in how available resources are invested and how this has changed over time.

Places & communities - What is known? Stakeholder views and research synthesis

Places & communities workstream A begins by scoping out the topic area relevant to our research question, through literature review and stakeholder consultation (WP1). Besides synthesising empirical findings, WP1 will provide the theoretical underpinning for the Programme developing a typology of strategies and interventions for reducing health inequalities with scarce resources – and generating theories underpinning our assumptions of how different types of approach impact upon health inequalities.

Mapping the child health system at a local level to reduce health inequalities

Giving every child the best start in life is a policy priority in England, yet we currently lack understanding of how to support children at a local level. To address this, we are undertaking a programme of research to better understand child health systems at a local level in order to identify opportunities for intervention.

Harnessing data to improve child health

Children in the UK have poor health compared to other Western European countries, and there are large and increasing inequalities in child health, including for mental health and obesity. Over the last 20 years numerous reviews of evidence and policy have repeatedly emphasised the need to provide better support early in children’s lives if we are to have any chance of significantly reducing the inequalities in life chances experienced by people in the UK. To address these challenges, we propose a programme of work with a focus on harnessing data to evaluate systems-based approaches for improving children and young people’s outcomes.

Examining the policy context for reducing health inequalities among children and young people

In order to identify and explore local system-wide approaches to reducing inequalities in children and young people’s health in England, it is essential to have a rounded understanding of current national policies. We also need to understand the issues that local policy makers and practitioners are navigating to try and implement these policies in a local decision-making context. This research will be framed by a social determinants of health perspective to ensure we identify the full range of policies with the potential to influence child health inequalities.
