On 27 March, 2012, the Department of Health published Healthy Lives, Healthy People: Towards a workforce strategy for the public health system. The document covers the challenges and opportunities, wider workforces and local community issues, and how to make sure we get it right for the public health specialist workforce.

The consultation on this document is open until 29 June 2012. The consultation is aimed at a wide audience, reflecting the Government?s view that public health is everyone?s business, and the findings will be used to inform a new strategy for this important group of staff.

The document is endorsed by the Local Government Association, which is encouraging councils to take part in the consultation.
