Recognising that culture is a wider enabler in improving health and wellbeing, Hull CCG is a Major Partner in Hull City of Culture 2017. This partnership is helping to ensure events throughout the year are truly inclusive of all sections of the community and address some of the wider determinants of poor health in the city. 

Emma has a particular interest in promoting health and wellbeing in children and young people, wanting to ensure that they access opportunities that help them realise their potential. This is an area she particularly champions within the city of Hull and in her role as a governor of East Riding College.
