February 3, 2021 in Events, Headline Events by Eleanor Cope

23 & 24 March 2021 

The annual conference, organised by the LGA and ADPH, included sessions on the future of the public health system, the new National Institute for Health Protection, public opinion on public health, and how we redouble our efforts on tackling health inequalities. 

All conference material, including slides and recordings, can be found on the LGA website:

In tandem with the event, the LGA and ADPH published the Public Health Annual Report 2021: Rising to the Challenges of COVID-19. The report looks back at what public health has helped to achieve and what could have been done better during the pandemic. It also looks to the future, discussing the proposed public health system reforms and the publication of the Department of Health and Social Care’s (DHSC) white paper, ‘Integration and Innovation: working together to improve health and social care for all’ and the significant organisational changes these could bring.
