Recently, LARIA colleagues have facilitated connecting networks, both within local areas and across regions.
Neil Bendel, Chair of the Greater Manchester Public Health Intelligence Network, visited the West Midlands Public Health Intelligence Group in early March to share experiences of working across the North West and discuss how the area is responding to the needs of the Combined Authority.
Within the West Midlands, this has helped to build on the successful event held in collaboration with the University of Birmingham at the end of January, which saw the re-launch of LARIA. A blog about the event is available here.
At the beginning of April, Andy Baker will present in Manchester on experiences within the West Midlands as part of the ESRC Seminar Series on Information Sharing for Devolution and Public Service Reform. To see the event agenda, please click here.
