Public Health Protection and Health Security framework

Back to Common Frameworks | Back to post-Brexit hub 

The Public Health Protection and Health Security framework is intended to implement the optimum operating model and governance arrangements to strengthen strategic and operational cooperation between the UK Government (UKG), the Devolved Administrations and public health agencies of the UK.

The Common Framework on Public Health Protection and Health Security has been jointly developed and agreed between:

  • the UK government
  • the Welsh Government
  • the Scottish Government
  • the Northern Ireland Executive
  • each of the UK’s national public health agencies

It provides a formal basis and governance structure for collaboration between all parts of the UK on health security and health protection policy. It supports cooperation on issues which require UK-wide approaches, as well as on devolved issues where the sharing of knowledge and expertise is beneficial.

28 October 2021The provisional framework was published.
