 Our work

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 year one impact report looks 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
  • A do-once-and-share approach is being trialled by policy leads within the Network 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.
