Transforming Public Health Bulletin issue 16 March 2013

Welcome to the March 2013 edition of the Transforming Public Health Bulletin.

This is the last issue of the Transforming Public Health (TPH) bulletin. From 1 April 2013, when Public Health England (PHE) takes up its full responsibilities as a new body to protect and improve the nation’s health and wellbeing and reduce inequalities, PHE will issue its own external bulletin.  If you already receive the TPH bulletin directly from the Department of Health, PHE will be sending you our new stakeholder bulletin in the near future.

In this final DH authored issue we provide an update on Public Health England, including the latest PHE appointments, news on a global burdens of disease study and the CMO’s latest warning on infectious diseases.
