2. Public Health Reform Programme - Eibhlin McHugh, Co-Director, Executive Delivery Group for Public Health Reform.
3.

An informative presentation was given by Ms Eilbhlin McHugh, Co-Director, Executive Delivery Group for Public Health Reform. 

 

The presentation focussed on the Public Health Reform Programme partnership between the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) and Scottish Government.  The partnership aims to address Scotland’s poor health outcomes. It  is tasked with the identification of public health priorities for Scotland, the setting up of a new national public health body and the development of  a whole system approach across the public sector that supports everybody to work together more effectively towards a shared vision for the public’s health with a strong focus on prevention and early intervention.

 

It is important that the reforms are informed by the experience of  local authorities and community planning partnerships so that the new arrangements are well placed to provide the support that is required at a local level to make a significant improvement in the experience of inequalities across local communities.

 

Following questions by the Board, Ms McHugh left the meeting.
