(Scottish Government) A consultation on a new National Public Health body: 'Public Health Scotland'

04 June 2019

The focus of this consultation is describing and seeking input on the role, functions and structure of a new Special Health Board to be called 'Public Health Scotland'.

This is an excellent opportunity to ensure that the new national body is designed in the best possible way to allow it to contribute to the whole public health system, both nationally and locally.

The BPS is looking to make a strong response and ensure that the concerns of psychologists are raised prior to the formation of the Health Board.
