COVID-19

Covid listing imageThe COVID-19 pandemic and its associated mitigation and control measures have had a substantial impact on us all, and in particular those who were already affected by inequalities. 

Recovering from a shock or crisis rarely means getting back to an earlier pre-crisis state. Instead, a new set of circumstances are often generated by both the crisis and the response to it. We have been undertaking work in various areas to help support, inform and provide evidence for how we can collectively recover and rebuild a healthier and fairer future. 

In line with government advice, GCPH staff are currently working from home - here's how to contact us.
