EPHC theme management group membership is led by local authority public health consultants/specialists, from the ten local authority members organisations within ARC (see below). There is also representation from public health intelligence and policy staff. Two members of the ARC adviser forum also sit on the group.
The group meets bi–monthly, providing oversight and input into the design and development of research projects that contribute to delivery of the aims of the EPHC theme. Membership is open to any ARC member organisation and the theme is keen to diversify membership.
EPHC provides regular reports to ARC senior management team and completes quarterly reports to NIHR on progress. More information on current work streams can be found here.
