Have your say on the public health workforce

A consultation has been launched to help identify and unlock the potential of the people who are responsible for improving the population’s health and wellbeing.

The public health workforce consultation is aimed at a wide audience, reflecting the government’s view that public health is everyone’s business, and the findings will be used to inform a new strategy for this important group of staff.

Towards a workforce strategy for the public health system covers the challenges and opportunities, wider workforces and local community issues, and how to make sure we get it right for the public health specialist workforce. It is endorsed by the Local Government Association, which is encouraging councils to take part in the consultation.
