REHIS President Lisa McCann attended a virtual event for stakeholders, showing Public Health Scotland’s proposed first strategic plan for the period 2020 -23. The event included request for comment on the strategic plan. REHIS submitted response indicating general agreement with the high level key priorities of the new Body but questioning the absence of tackling obesity challenges in Scotland. The response focussed on the importance of ensuring a competent workforce to tackle the priorities and in particular the challenges that the Environmental Health profession has, with regards to the issues highlighted in the Society of Chief Officers of Environmental Health in Scotland/REHIS Workforce Strategy Report and the need for funding to support students through the professional qualification. Comments received from stakeholders are to be considered and a revised plan developed in September.
