About the Region
The South West region consists of the counties of Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire as well as the Isles of Scilly. There are several major urban centres, it has the longest coastline of any English region and large parts of the region are rural.
The PPMA membership in the south-west reflects a range of public services and we have recently been joined by our first charity members. The PPMA in the south-west has a long-standing partnership with South West Councils and holds joint events annually. More recently, the PPMA has developed a partnership with our health colleagues in HPMA and our events are open to each other.
