Health institutions as anchors: establishing proof of concept in the NHS

21st August 2019.

This research was commissioned by the Health Foundation, following their report, Building healthier communities: the role of the NHS as an anchor institution, which explores the ways in which NHS organisations act as anchor institutions in their local communities. This report from the Centre for Local Economic Strategies and The Democracy Collaborative considers health institutions as anchors within the context of a broader community wealth building approach.
