The transition of public health into local government has seen one of the most significant changes for councils in recent years. This annual flagship conference from LGA and ADPH on public health offers a valuable opportunity to analyse the implications for local government. It will highlight the innovative work already being undertaken by councils and public health teams, with their partners and communities, and look at how to build on existing best practice.
