The College supports the introduction of Public Health Scotland (PHS) as a new national organisation. The College is supportive of the approach to robust and effective cross sector partnership working in order to deliver positive public health outcomes for Scotland.

Delivering public health services that are better informed by local needs is most welcome and the College also strongly supports a human rights based approach to health and wellbeing. The College further commends the statement provided by the Faculty of Public Health which provides additional feedback on the new National Public Health body: ‘Public Health Scotland’.
