The Board provides independent strategic advice to the School Executive on the development of its activities in the context of national and international strategic opportunities and priorities.
It includes professionals drawn from organisations and professional bodies with responsibility for developing and implementing public health measures, senior academic researchers in public health from outside England, and two lay expert members who contribute a public perspective.
