Health Protection

Health Protection (see also Environmental Health)

With partners in the local Health Protection Group and lead officers for Environmental Health we are producing JSNA content to describe the local story of need for Wirral residents in relation to Health Protection and to support the raising of awareness of the issues that relate to Health Protection.

The local Health Protection Group is chaired by the Director of Public Health and includes lead members with responsibility for health protection from Wirral Council, NHS England, Public Health England and Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group. The group has a strategic focus on system leadership, assurance and risk management for health protection across Wirral. The group is responsible for presenting this 'local story of need' in the JSNA
