The UK Public Health Network was established following a summit meeting held in October 2014.

The summit agreed that:

  • Public health in the UK has become fragmented, with many different bodies speaking for the sector.
  • The health of the public across the UK faces enormous challenges, including financial, demographic and professional.
  • A ‘whole system approach’, working towards a collaborative agenda and strategy, would be beneficial to each organisation, as well as improving the public’s health.

The summit agreed to:

  1. improve the way that the public health community speaks about the public’s health and wellbeing,
  2. share information and knowledge between members.
  3. coordinate activities.

At present, membership of the UK Public Health Network is principally through invitation and is focused on those membership organisations with a broad remit across public health. However, we are very happy to consider requests from umbrella organisations that represent a cross-section of public health interests in the UK. Please contact
