Consultation on the new National Public Health Body ‘Public Health Scotland’

PUBLISHED: Jul 18, 2019
CATEGORY: Consultation Responses 19-20 

The SSA has compiled this response following consultation, as usual, with our member Scottish Governing Bodies (SGBs).  

Our members share the vision outlined within the consultation for a genuine “culture for health” and embrace and our shared responsibility for making sure that people enjoy the best overall quality of life.

The collaborative approach proposed throughout the consultation, the requirement for cross department and cross agency working, the need for greater community involvement and the potentially significant benefits of collaboration between all sectors are warmly welcomed by our members.
