Let Glasgow Flourish

Apr 2006

This landmark report, published in 2006 was a comprehensive, data-driven, review of health and its determinants in Glasgow and the West of Scotland. Its purpose was to increase understanding, provoke debate and stimulate action.

The report summarised four main themes:

  • how Glasgow had changed as a place over time, particularly over the 25 years prior to publication.
  • the health profile of Glasgow: what was getting better, what was proving resistant to change and what was getting worse.
  • how we could make sense of these trends.
  • future challenges in relation to demography, economic factors, health behaviours and sustainability. 

Note that the data in the report have since been updated, and expanded upon, to become part of the Understanding Glasgow website.
