PHE is an executive agency of the Department of Health that began operating on 1 April 2013. Its formation came as a result of changes outlined in the Health and Social Care Act 2012. It is responsible for the implementation and leadership of public health at the national level. The implementation of PHE’s operational strategies will crucially depend on access to high quality, timely and relevant research results. 

As part of its wider work on public health, the Academy hosted two meetings with PHE to examine the interface between research and practice in public health, and assist in the development of PHE’s strategy for research.
