The ADPH is led by its Council and managed by the staff. It is governed by its ADPH Governance Framework and has a framework of policies and protocols within which it functions. The President and honorary officers (the Company Directors) and the Chief Executive (Company Secretary) have the responsibility of ensuring compliance with the governance structure. The representative structure across the UK provides a democratic and inclusive governance for the ADPH and improves engagement and ownership by DsPH at local level. Each year there is an Annual General Meeting where the Annual Review and Financial Statement are presented. You may view our recent Annual Reviews here and our AGM minutes here.

The Association became a Company Limited by Guarantee in 2013 registered in England and Wales (#08448934) and in 2015 a Registered Charity (No.1164513). ADPH is hosted by the UK Health Forum.
