Practice Experience of Involving People in Public Health
Gwen Ellison is the Health Trainer Hub Lead for Northumberland Tyne and Wear. Her presentation was based on her experiences of being involved in a range of community-based activities in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. These include developing a Healthy Living Centre and a Healthy Living Network and developing the health trainer programme. Gwen’s presentation raised a number of key questions:  ‘lay people’ - who are they? What is public health/health promotion? What is sustainability? The presentation included information about the challenges and opportunities for involving lay people in public health delivery and also in development and planning. The presentation discussed the value and knowledge that lay workers bring to their community and some of the barriers that are encountered.
