View of Health in Glasgow

Originally, produced for an international audience at a conference in Pittsburgh, USA, this film provides insights on health concerns and beliefs drawn from interviews with Glaswegians themselves and with a group of health experts. 

  • In the film members of the public are asked a series of questions about health:
  • How do you feel Glasgow has changed in your life time?
  • What do you think has been getting better and what has been getting worse in terms of health?
  • Do you think there are different health problems in different communities across Glasgow?

Three experts in the field of health and health inequalities comment on:

  • the major health trends in Glasgow in the last 20 years
  • what is different about Glasgow’s health challenge from those of other areas
  • actions being taken to improve health and wellbeing in the city
  • the major threats or health issues in Glasgow in the next 50 years
  • the most important things that have been learnt about how to improve Glasgow’s health
