"This year's annual report describes the state of our health and wellbeing across Lancashire and how Covid-19 has impacted our lives and livelihoods. It aims to reframe our health as an asset in Lancashire rather than a liability. It highlights the importance of our actions to improve health and reduce inequalities as key means to a thriving and inclusive economy, and addressing the impacts of climate change.

Our aim is to support Lancashire residents thrive well through better life chances. I look forward to working with you in developing Lancashire as a safer, fairer, and a healthier place for all." –  Dr. Sakthi Karunanithi, Director of Public Health for Lancashire.
