Weekly message from the Chief Executive of Public Health England.



On Monday I attended the Enfield and Haringey Tobacco Control Alliance Conference.

I spent the day with Louise Casey from the Troubled Families Programme on a visit to the Matson and Podsmead estates in Gloucestershire, meeting local people who were making their communities safer, more hopeful and more resilient.

Last weekend, our lead on global health security, Dr Brian McCloskey co-chaired the launch of the Global Centre for Mass Gathering Medicine at an international conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
