PR Week
September 21st 2019
Public Sector Briefing

Welcome back to the public sector bulletin for what will undoubtedly be a busy autumn for those working in comms.

Our exclusive top story shows how local authority comms teams and budgets have been slashed in the last five years.

The ongoing cuts to comms are, perhaps, reflected in falling levels of trust and satisfaction in councils by residents in a recent Local Government Association survey.  

Also this week, comms pros from the NHS and beyond have reacted to the demand that the NHS toe the Government’s line on Brexit, with our commentator this week accusing the health department of “micromanagement on steroids".

We also have news of Downing Street’s new head of digital comms and a story on this week’s resignation honours, with gongs awarded to one government department comms chief.

Enjoy this week’s bulletin

Ian Griggs, editor, Public Sector Briefing
