We support transformation in the capacity and capability of the public health system by working with organisations to develop a wider workforce that will enable everyone to lead healthier lives.
In response to the NHS Five Year Forward View, the Academy of Public Health was set up in 2016 and provides a cost-effective example of HEE’s leadership role.
In collaboration with partners, the Academy identifies and agrees shared public health workforce priorities and jointly designs and delivers innovative approaches and interventions to develop new and emerging workforces in public health.
What we do
- Champion workforce education, training and development for organisations and individuals improving and protecting the public’s health and general wellbeing; from professionals in the sector, through to all those whose work impacts upon the public’s health
- Empower the broad public health workforce to have the greatest impact in supporting healthy lifestyles
- Enable flexible workforce development and career progression that is relevant, timely, adaptive and fit for the future
- Drive up new skills and standards by commissioning transformative programmes, embracing innovation and developing a virtual learning platform with a place for sharing ideas, tools and resources
Any organisation or individual with a key role supporting people and communities living and working in London and Kent Surrey Sussex to stay healthy can be part of the Academy. Contact us at AofPH@hee.nhs.uk for more information.
