The Faculty of Public Health (FPH) and the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland have become the latest members of the PRSB.
The Faculty of Public Health, which represents nearly 4,000 public health professionals across the UK and around the world, is a registered charity, originally set up by the Royal College of Physicians. They work closely with local government and public health teams to develop strategies on tackling issue like air pollution, smoking, obesity and drug-use in their local communities. They also help to aim to raise awareness on issues like infectious illness and housing concerns that impact health.
Meanwhile, the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland has more than 2,500 members. They include large, national support providers as well as small, local volunteer-led groups and patients and carers. The organisation’s vision is to give a voice and platform to those who are disabled or living with long-term conditions, as well as unpaid carers and other citizens.
