We were very grateful to have had Dr Margaret Douglas attend our AGM this week to share some of her current research with us on the interaction between COVID19 and Health Inequalities. Her slides are below. Thank you Margaret for joining us. Covid19 and Health Inequalities
What started as a relatively small event to discuss our recent work on Outcomes, ended up being a large event with fifty people at City Chambers, with key stakeholders from NHS Lothian, City of Edinburgh Council, the Edinburgh HSCP and the Scottish Community Development Centre.
With funding from the EIJB, over the past 6 months, ECHF members have been working together to understand the contribution of their work to improving outcomes for people and communities and in addressing health inequalities. Alongside colleagues from the Edinburgh based organisation “Matter of Focus”(https://www.matter-of-focus.com/about-us/) they have developed a shared theory of change, identified relevant data and evidence and started analysing their data and information to tell the story of the contribution that each organisation makes. This work builds on
We were delighted to welcome Lena Lorenz (Research Impact Officer at Edinburgh University) to our latest forum meeting to share her work which looks into how the Scottish Health & Ethnicity Linkage Study has affected work at a community level (or not). You can find her presentation below and we look forward to working with Lena more over the coming months. SHELS_ECHF Nov 2019_FINAL
