Phil Couser is Director of Public Health and Intelligence at National Services Scotland. In this blog he discusses the Scottish Health Survey, which was published in late 2018. The survey provides an important backdrop to reform and Scotland’s Public Health challenges.
Phil sets out the opportunity for Public Health Scotland – once established - to get more actively involved in further contributing to this work. He also discusses how the survey and its findings can support collaboration and whole system working around the Public Health Priorities.
