Lambeth Health Determinants Research & Evaluation Network (HEART). 

Lambeth is one of 13 local authorities to get this new funding in the first round to form new HDRCs across the UK, to provide capacity and capability through collaborations with researchers and other stakeholders to undertake research to address the wider determinants of health and health inequalities.

Life expectancy and healthy life expectancy has fallen in the last few years – the funding from NIHR will help take action to reverse this trend by using research and evidence to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.

Lambeth Council’s Public Health Team worked with local people, staff and partners at Black Thrive, King’s College London and ARC South London to design Lambeth HEART – a name chosen to spell out Health Evaluation and Research Network.
