This webinar examines public health law, how it is exercised and what it covers.


Starting with a look at how the English legal system works, it then moves on to consider the organisations and people involved. There is then a full examination of the control powers contained within the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984. The day rounds off by looking at other public health issues including statutory nuisance, health and safety and food legislation. 


This webinar is ideal for those involved in public health whether from PHE, county councils or district councils, and provides an interactive and enjoyable training experience.
