The PHA’s publications team oversees the development and production of a wide range of high quality electronic and printed support materials for both health professionals and members of the public. The materials – ranging from training materials, campaign materials and scientific research reports, to booklets, information leaflets and posters – are produced to support and promote the various work areas within the PHA.

The publications team works closely with the relevant subject lead and ensures that:

  • all materials are well researched and technically accurate;
  • all necessary permissions such as copyright are sought;
  • text is edited so it adheres to the principles of ‘plain English’;
  • text conforms to the PHA’s house style;
  • layout and design enhance understanding;
  • proofreading is carried out to a high standard;
  • the material is accessible to the target audience.

This process is regularly reviewed to ensure a high degree of quality and efficiency is maintained, and appropriate training is organised for staff on the development and production of support materials if required.
