Shropshire Council

Shropshire Public Health Team

Our director of public health is Rachel Robinson.

Everything the team does is based on evidence and includes:  

  • Health protection: protecting the health of people from infectious diseases like Covid-19, environmental hazards and through working with other partners so we're prepared to deal with emergencies
  • Promotion: promotion of healthy lifestyles through public health campaigns and events
  • Data surveillance: use of current data to understand the health conditions, lifestyles and patterns of disease that affect Shropshire people. This also helps to identify health inequalities across different areas of Shropshire, and enables us to plan action to address these.

Other responsibilities are referred to in the other pages in this section.
