The Director of Public Health is a statutory chief officer of their authority and the principal adviser on all health matters to elected members and officers, with a frontline leadership role spanning all three domains of public health – health improvement, health protection and healthcare public health.

The Annual Report of the Director of Public Health is a statutory function and forms an element of the strategic planning process for improving population health.

Over the last two years the Public Health Annual Report (PHAR) has been used as a vehicle to document the city’s journey through the pandemic. This journey has taken us from the declaration of a pandemic to public health’s role in keeping communities safe, the true impact on our communities, what we have learnt and how we plan to recover as a city.

Even though everyone has lived through this storm we want to bring the whole story of resilience, grit  and determination to life and take it into the heart of our communities to show how far we have come.

Public Health working alongside Culture Liverpool have commissioned artists to use high quality and engaging cultural activity to animate, bring to life and educate Liverpool’s residents about the city’s Covid journey.

Welcome to visual virals…….. and this astonishing and unexpected story.
