SPHR’s goal is to produce high quality evidence needed by public health practice to improve the health of the population and help reduce health inequalities. To achieve this, the School must address the challenges faced by public health professionals working on the ‘front line’.
To help respond to these challenges, we have set up the Public Health Practice Evaluation Scheme (PHPES). PHPES enables public health practitioners to work in partnership with the SPHR team on robust evaluations of innovative public health projects or initiatives they are delivering.
What PHPES offers
The scheme offers public health practitioners working in any sector an exciting opportunity to:
- Collaborate with leading population health scientists to evaluate your practice
- Gain national profile for your work
- Provide evidence on the cost-effectiveness of your work that others can use
- The possibility that your project or initiative will be replicated in other areas
What we’re looking for
We welcome applications from people working across public health community; in the NHS, local authority, clinical commissioning groups, screening teams and third sector organisations.
Your project or initiative can be focused on changing the environment in which people live and work – natural, built, social, financial, regulatory and cultural, promoting healthy individual behaviour or both. We will also consider those aimed at improving population health services.
To be eligible for funding, your initiative should:
- aim to improve population health and / or reduce health inequalities
- have the potential to be of benefit in other parts of England
- have secure funding for the duration of the evaluation (normally around 2 years)
Your organisation will also need to be able to commit time and resources to contribute to the evaluation collaboration.

You can also approach an SPHR member for advice. A list of members is available here.
