Our work is divided into three programmes:


Our policy work is collaborative, based on our member’s priorities and is undertaken in accordance with our agreed Policy Protocols.

We undertake both reactive and proactive activities including but not limited to development of policy position statements, consultation responses, representation at meetings and joint work as part of coalitions.

You can learn more about our policy work on the PH Policy and PH System pages.

Mutual support and collective effort

Sharing good practice and expertise and promoting networking including workshops and other events.

DPH development

Supporting DsPH and their role through national approaches and providing development opportunities, including the DPH Annual Report Competition.

We work to a three year strategic Business Plan with Annual Plans for each work programme. We produce an Annual Review each year describing our achievements.
