Midlands - 4 February 2014

The transfer of public health from the NHS to local government and Public Health England (PHE) is one of the most significant extensions of local government powers and duties in a generation. It represents a unique opportunity to change the focus from treating sickness to actively promoting health and wellbeing. The LGA's national annual flagship conference on public health will offer a valuable opportunity to analyse the implications for local government and public health since transition.

The conference will highlight the innovative work already being undertaken by councils and public health teams, with their partners and communities, and look at how to build on existing best practice to identify and tackle the challenges and opportunities of this new public health landscape. The packed programme will give many opportunities to hear keynote addresses and take part in plenary sessions, as well as a variety of participatory breakouts and networking sessions.

This is your opportunity to hear the very latest thinking on key policy and improvement agendas, put your questions and comments to those involved in shaping them at the highest level, and network with your peers on the issues that matter to you locally. Last year's conference was over-subscribed – book your place now!

This year's conference is being run in partnership with the Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH).
