Ayrshire and Arran Joint Health Protection Plan (JHPP)

The Public Health (Scotland) Act 2008 requires that each Health Board, in Scotland, must lead on the preparation of a Joint Health Protection Plan (JHPP) for its area and must consult with local authorities in doing so.

The JHPP provides an overview of:

  • health protection priorities
  • provision and preparedness for the NHS Board area.

The latest JHPP has been produced by the Joint Health Protection Planning Group. The Planning group is made up of representatives from NHS Ayrshire & Arran, the 3 Ayrshire local authorities (Environmental Health) and the Ayrshire Civil Contingencies Team.
