About Us

Formed shortly before the transition of public health services from the NHS to Local Authorities in 2013, the London Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH London) acts as a regional network of the UK-wide Association of Directors of Public Health

About ADPH London

Our membership includes: Local Authority Directors of Public Health (DsPH) from each of the 32 London Boroughs, the City of London, and the Head of Health for the Greater London Authority (GLA). We work closely with partners across Local Government and in the Health and Care sector. Find out more about some of our partners here.

Through ADPH London, DsPH work together to address issues that can either only be successfully tackled on a pan-London basis, and/or that enhance the ability of boroughs to meet their responsibilities locally. e.g., through delivering efficiencies, sharing of best practice, reducing duplication, and improving coordination of related work.

ADPH London is jointly  Chaired by Somen Banerjee, the Director of Public Health for Tower Hamlets and Steven Whiteman, the Director of Public Health for Greenwich. They are supported by 3 Vice-Chairs, along with a small programme office, hosted by Haringey Council.
