ADPH SW responds to the DHSC policy paper
SW Directors of Public Health provided feedback to the following questions:
- Question 1: How can we strengthen the local authority and Director of Public Health role in addressing the full range of issues that affect the health of local populations?
- Question 2: How do we ensure that future arrangements encourage effective collaboration between national, regional and local actors across the system?
- Question 3: What additional arrangements might be needed to ensure that regionally focussed public health teams best meet the needs of local government and local NHS partners?
