Public health commissioning
We carried out an assessment of what development is available to public health commissioners, what is needed – both strategically and on the ground, and where there were gaps.
As a result of this, and discussion with likeminded organisations, two key sources of training for public health commissioners have been highlighted:
- The Skills Development Network currently provide training for NHS commissioners are willing to open this offer out to local authority public health teams (terms apply)
- Skills for Care have created a level 5 qualification for social care commissioners. Working together with ADASS, both London and KSS ADPH, and the Academy this is being expanded to include public health.
