The 2014 Annual Environmental Health Review, a document celebrating the work of Scotland’s environmental health partners, was launched at the REHIS Annual Environmental Health Forum, Clydebank, this morning. Download a copy here.
The REHIS Annual Environmental Health Forum replaces the Institute’s Annual Conference. Last summer the Council of REHIS undertook a member survey to seek opinion on the future delivery of the Annual Conference. Feedback from the membership was taken into consideration and a new format agreed. The result will be the presentation, for the first time, of the REHIS Annual Environmental Health Forum. The Forum will be less expensive than the Annual Conference with discounts available to members of REHIS and partner organisations, and aims to be more inclusive.

I am delighted to welcome a report written by Community Food and Health (Scotland), or CFHS, detailing the views of 12 trainers delivering the REHIS Elementary Cooking Skills course. CFHS provided funding to 13 groups for them to deliver the course in low-income communities.
