All you need to know about public health reform!

Public health briefing imagePublic health reform is in full swing, with a new national body, Public Health Scotland due to be established next year. In this CHEX briefing, we start from the assumption that many people in Scotland, including those working in community-led health, will not be familiar with the reform process, and even with public health more generally.

We set out the basics of public health and public health reform, highlighting that the process so far has put a strong emphasis on community and community-led approaches. We seek to build on this, highlighting the unique contribution community-led health makes to tackling health inequalities, and pointing to the evidence of this contribution.

Finally, we encourage our network to take advantage of opportunities to engage with public health reform where they can, including the current consultation on setting up Public Health Scotland.
