Wider Public Health Community Partners

Representatives from the wider North East public health community are invited to be partners on a case-by-case basis, with proviso that non DPH members will not participate in meeting discussions or represent the network on issues where there is a conflict of interest between their respective organisation and ADPH.

Recognising the importance of working across the geography of the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care Board, while they are formally part of the ADPH North West network the Directors of Public Health for Cumberland and Westmorland & Furness (covering the North Cumbria ICB area) are also invited to be members.
