Knowledge Services

At the second meeting of the national Health and Social Care Physical Activity Delivery Group in June 2015, an action was identified to develop and test the application of a methodology that would strategically enable Local Authorities and NHS Boards to mainstream physical activity within the integration of health and social care.  A methodology has now been developed and tested in Dumfries.  Results are so far positive and a number of other Local Authority/NHS Board areas keen to apply the methodology in practice.

Improve Policy and Practice

The Public health skills and knowledge framework aims to reflect the current public health landscape, ensuring the public health workforce continues to develop the skills and competencies needed both now and in future.

 

The framework is accompanied by a user guide explaining how it can be used by individuals, employers and educational providers working in public health.

 

The Public health skills and knowledge framework was first published as the Public Health Skills and Careers Framework in 2008. It has been reviewed and redesigned in collaboration between lead agencies across the UK including Public Health England, Public Health Wales, NHS Scotland and the Public Health Agency of Northern Ireland.
