FPH Statement on Public Health Reform in Scotland

FPH in Scotland, having welcomed our formal and informal involvement in the Scottish Government Public Health Reform process, have today published a statement on public health reform in Scotland.

There have been many strengths of the public health function in Scotland, and the implementation of a new national public health organisation for Scotland, as well as the ongoing process of public health reform creates many opportunities to further build on these strengths.

Recognising financial constraint, the statement focusses on ways in which the existing specialist services can be deployed most effectively, and where further development of the specialist function will be essential to addressing national public health priorities.
