Platform: Microsoft Teams

On 16 March 2021, the ADPH ran a one-hour webinar on the role Directors of Public Health have to play in supporting businesses through COVID-19 and the roadmap out of lockdown.

The session was an opportunity to:

  • Examine the role of Directors of Public Health in supporting local businesses to mitigate the challenges of COVID-19.
  • Reflect on early learning from pilot programmes and discuss how to improve the interface between local public health and NHS Test & Trace going forward.
  • Facilitate a forum for Directors of Public Health to map common solutions to key challenges, for example around testing and support to self-isolate.

Attendees heard case studies and evidence gathered from the forefront of this developing field from speakers from NHS Test and Trace, DHSC and local government public health teams.
