Placing the Public in Public Health: Public Health in Britain 1948-2010
Funder: Wellcome Trust
Date: 2nd September 2013 – 31 August 2018
Principal Investigator: Dr Alex Mold
Staff: Gareth Millward and Daisy Payling
Description: The place of the public within public health is a critical issue for contemporary public health in Britain. Whether it involves appealing to individuals to stop smoking, or asking patients what they think of health services, the ‘public’ is constantly constructed and reconstructed within public health policy and practice. This project seeks to historicise these concerns, aiming to explore and explain the changing place of the public within public health in post-war Britain.
