Hello PPMA members and friends

It’s been just over four years since Public Health transferred to local government and the LGA have recently published a video podcast that look’s at how that’s changed in councils and also how the profession is developing. Hosted by Luann Donald, Senior Workforce Adviser at the LGA, the podcast includes interviews with Jonathan McShane, Councillor at Hackney Council and Liz McQue from Northwest Employers, who talk about the work they’ve been doing this area. Phil Bundy, Senior Employment Law Adviser at the LGA, was part of the original team looking at the transfer of staff from the NHS into local government way back in 2013 and he gives us an update on the current situation.
