Report of Health Protection Advisory Group 2011

When the Health Protection Advisory Group (HPAG) was set up in 2005, the aim was to establish an advisory group that represented the wide spectrum of health protection in Scotland. It followed on from the other changes that had been implemented with respect to health protection. It was the first attempt to produce such a comprehensive advisory mechanism at a national level. There was debate at the time about the limited role of a group that was ‘advisory’ and did not have any executive function, or indeed a funded infrastructure.
