Health Protection Committee

The Health Protection Committee acts as a source of advice and expertise on health protection policies and issues, including: communicable disease control and delivery of national, regional and local health protection services; control of biological, chemical and other environmental hazards; emergency planning and preparedness; and the effects of climate change.

The Health Protection (Education & Training) Special Interest Group (SIG) reports to the Health Services Committee. The Committee and SIG chairs will collaborate to co-ordinate the work of the SIGs and the Committee to maximise their impact.
