Register here to join our In Conversation Live with Andy Burnham

Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester, will be joining Professor Sir Simon Wessely, RSM immediate Past-President, for a conversation about his career, his thoughts for developing green cities with tangible public benefits such as his plans for Greater Manchester to be the first UK city region to deliver a carbon neutral transport network, a 21st century plan to end homelessness, and how the city region is coping with COVID-19 infection rates.

Instead of charging for this webinar, we are asking people to support the Royal Society of Medicine in these uncertain times. Now more than ever, we need your help to continue our work. Please consider making a donation for watching this webinar. Thank you for your generosity.

Andy Burnham was first elected as Mayor of Greater Manchester in May 2017 and was re-elected for a second term in May 2021.

Responsible for shaping the future of Greater Manchester, Andy’s priorities include building a London-style integrated transport system, ending rough sleeping, transforming Greater Manchester into one of the greenest city regions in Europe and making Greater Manchester a great place to grow up, get on, and grow old.

Before being elected Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy was MP for Leigh from 2001. In government, Andy has held Ministerial positions at the Home Office, Department of Health, and the Treasury. In 2008 he became Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, before returning to Health as Secretary of State in 2009.

In opposition, Andy has served as Shadow Education Secretary, Shadow Health Secretary and Shadow Home Secretary.
