In November 2017, ADPH published a series of policy position statements on eight key topics alongside a narrative document exploring roles and enablers within the public health system. These position statements have since been reviewed and updated.

These statements bring together the views and recommendations of our members on eight key public health topics: outdoor air quality, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, obesity, sexual health, housing, and mental health. The narrative is a collation of existing ADPH publications and views from the membership with key recommendations to ensure the public health system is fit for the future.

These statements will help us to drive our policy work forward and push for our members’ recommendations in all the policy work that we do.

If you would like to discuss anything in these documents please do contact the ADPH Policy Team by emailing enquiries@adph.org.uk.

ADPH response to the Technical Consultation on Planning

September 25, 2014 in ADPH Updates, Mental Health, Policies by admin

ADPH has submitted a response to the Department for Communities and Local Government consultation, highlighting concerns that, despite the recent National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) giving increased importance to the influence which planning can have on health and wellbeing, there is no mention in the document of health, nor any practical measures proposed for development control officers on how to achieve this.
