I had the honour of opening our first PHE Annual Conference in Warwick over Tuesday and Wednesday.

On the second day of the conference, I attended a breakfast briefing on the new Local Government Declaration on Tobacco Control.

September got off to a flying start with 2 of our local PHE centres – Kent, Surrey and Sussex and the West Midlands – convening gatherings to listen to and explore how we can best support our partners across local government, the local NHS, the emergency services and the voluntary and community sector.
