The Place Programme is a core contributor into a Public Health Reform Whole System Approach Early Adopter on Place and Health.
A Place Working Group has been established to progress collaboration around place and place-making as part of the prevention element of public health reform. Representives from NHS Boards, NHS Health Scotland, Glasgow Centre for Population Health, COSLA, Glasgow City Council, West Lothian Council and Edinburgh University make up the group.
The Place Working Group is working to define a set of principles for place and health in Scotland. These will support the delivery of 'Health in All Policies' in the National Planning Framework and planning authorities' Local Development Plans, and support local action. The principles for place and health will be agreed with Scottish Government and COSLA with the expectation that Public Health Scotland will support implementation across the whole system.
The Working Group will also scope out the feasibility of Public Health Scotland becoming the consultation authority on population health matters, to support turning evidence on delivering healthy places into practice. This will include support using the Place Principle as a core prevention opportunity for Public Health Scotland to work across the whole system
