Abstract

This paper sets the discussion of sustainable development into the context of a city's sustainable futures by relating to the notions and contexts of community health and well-being. The paper discusses aspects of research carried out to identify the potential and consequential health impacts that may arise from the Salford Health Investment for Tomorrow project and the Local Improvement Finance project. The project involved the redevelopment and provision of the new specialist acute hospital facilities at Salford Royal Hospitals Trust, in the City of Salford, UK and four primary care and social centres, representing substantial capital investments across the city. The research demonstrates sustainable development in application through the insights gained from the extensive range of positive and negative health outcomes that were predicted as likely to arise from the project.
