SHA Policy process

Dear member,

As you may know, Central Council has agreed a way forward for continuing our policy development work. There are four policy areas being explored further and these are:

a) Looking at our extant public health policies to see what significant gaps, if any, should be addressed

b) Looking at the needs of carers

c) Adding to / undertaking a critical analysis of the Labour Party NPF paper on Mental Health issued last year

d) Taking further some current ideas for what a new (integrated and English ) health and care system might look like, he basis of its funding, values and governance etc

If any SHA member wishes to be contribute to the work of any of these four groups, please could they contact Vice Chair (Policy) Tony Beddow, outlining their policy interest, location, and any background in their chosen subject.
