Detail

Public Health England (PHE) worked with the Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH) and the Local Government Association (LGA) to develop a masterclass to understand what PHE could do to support directors and consultants of public health to embed health and health equity in all policies at a local level.

These documents provide a full report and executive summary of 2 pilot masterclasses held on:

  • 25 February 2015 in London
  • 17 March 2015 in Manchester

The masterclasses aimed to:

  • frame public health challenges and use appropriate language within the context of overarching local authority priorities
  • effectively position health and wellbeing in the context of competing (and sometimes conflicting) policy agendas
  • engage wider service and policy areas in the pursuit of health and health equity within current economic and funding contexts
