Public Sector Bulletin

We lead this week’s bulletin with news of the launch of a major new health campaign brand from Public Health England, deployed at what the organisation calls a pivotal moment for the nation’s health in the light of the pandemic.

The integrated campaign will initially focus on the UK’s endemic obesity problem but will also cover mental health, exercise and smoking cessation, folding in PHE’s annual Stoptober campaign under the ‘Better Health’ brand.

Meanwhile, a former government comms chief has joined an anti-extremism organisation as its new campaign director.

And one of our commentators this week, in policing comms, talks about the personal and professional cost of doing her job during COVID-19.

The public sector comms bulletin will return to your inboxes in September, but we will still be covering stories from the sector in the meantime.

Until the bulletin returns, enjoy the rest of your summer and stay safe.
