Partners in the statement with PHE are:
- Association of Directors of Public Health

This statement, sponsored by the Standing Group on Local Public Health teams, includes a definition of placements shared by the partner organisations, the benefits and value of placements and a series of illustrative case studies.
The intended audience includes directors of human resources, workforce and organisational development, chief executive officers, directors of public health, and public health leaders and managers from all organisations within the public health system.
