Public Health England (PHE) engages with the National Centre for Rural Health and Care (NCRHC) as a partner and provides expert public health advice and information to the centre. PHE promotes the NCRHC’s work through its networks of stakeholders and partners across health and social care organisations and has provided a platform for the work of the NCRHC at national and regional conferences. PHE made specific contribution to the Data and Insight workstream, one of four workstreams prioritised by the NCRHC. In addition, PHE provided Public Health Consultant level support in the initial stages of the set up of the NCRHC.
PHE has given evidence to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Rural Health and Care, which is supported by the NCRHC. Minutes from this meeting are available to view at the following link:
