Minding the Gap – DsPH Working Across and Between Organisations

Set as a ‘listening event’ in the middle of the ‘pause’ in the restructuring of the English NHS and PH system the conference covered the issues thrown up around the DPH role in the new system. With 16 speakers (profiles here and here) and 100 delegates it was an excellent opportunity for networking and sharing experiences. After an introduction from Frank Atherton, our President, the agenda was split into three panel and discussion sessions and ended with an uplifting keynote address from Tony Jewell, CMO Wales around the role of the DPH in the 21st Century.

Speakers included:

Ruth Hussey, DPH, Public Health England Transition Team

Peter Hay, President, ADASS

David Kidney, Head of Policy, CIEH

Paul Zollinger-Read, Director of Commissioning Development, East of England
