The UK Public Health Network works to:

Facilitate learning and deepen understanding

  • Sharing learning from the different public health situations across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland puts countries and organisations in closer contact with each other.
  • The Network’s annual impact reports look at the progress made towards speaking with a united voice, particularly on the strategic issues common to all jurisdictions.

Generate UK-wide conversations

  • Conversations between the statutory and voluntary & community sector organisations are starting to change the way that the public health community speaks.

Encourage partnership working

  • Policy leads adopt a do-once-and-share approach within the Network where possible to reduce duplication of effort.
  • The potential for greater collaboration between public health conferences is being explored through the idea of a UK public health week.

We publish public summaries of all our meetings here.
