Public Health

Last updated:

Public Health is the science and practice of preventing disease and ill health and prolonging and promoting good health and wellbeing. This team was formerly part of the NHS; however, it is now part of Buckinghamshire Council, while still maintaining close links with the NHS. A key part of its work is promoting the health and wellbeing of children and young people; supporting families and professionals in order to provide them with a good start in life and equipping them with the resilience and skills they need to flourish.

Public Health has created its pages on SchoolsWeb in direct response to the request from schools for more co-ordinated and concise health information to support school activities. It includes information and resources on:
