Event: Developing a Natural Health Service

09 September 2015

There is a wealth of evidence to show how high quality natural environments can support health and wellbeing. Specific programmes such as Green Gym, Forest School, Cycle for Health and Walking for Health use the natural environment as the basis for their work.

However, these types of intervention are still not integrated fully into the health and social care systems, are often funded as short-term projects and can lack robust assessments of health outcomes.

The Natural Health Service has been established by The Mersey Forest to;


  • Develop targeted health products that make use of the Natural Environment as a key element of health care or improvement.
  • Improve the consistency of the evaluation of the products delivered.
  • Improve overall quality of service delivery.
  • Help to coordinate environment bodies and our offer to the health and social care sector.
  • Increase the use of the natural environment to support good health as part of the wider determinants of health.
  • Establish the Natural Health Service as a commissionable business.

The last few months has seen exciting progress with a significant tranche of funding and the establishment of a Natural Health Service Research Centre of Excellence.


Join us to find out more in this lecture by Paul Nolan OBE, Director of the Mersey Forest. The event is organised jointly by the Merseyside Environment Trust and the Duncan Society in partnership with the University of Liverpool.
