About the Public Health Information Network for Scotland (PHINS)

The Public Health Information Network for Scotland (PHINS) aims to keep public health professionals in Scotland up-to-date with national and local developments in public health information via bulletins, email updates and seminars. To join the network, please register with the ScotPHO website.

PHINS seminars

Seminars are held on an annual basis to discuss and publicise current public health related developments and research. 

This year's seminar will take place on Friday 29th September 2017 in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. 

You can view the morning's programme here: PHINS 2017 seminar programme (280Kb).

As before, this event is free of charge. However, spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. You can register for the event here: PHINS 2017 seminar registration.

Please note: If you can't attend in person on the day, you can register interest in joining the event by webcast here: PHINS 2017 seminar - interested in webcast option. We will use this information to help us decide whether there is sufficient demand to provide this option.

PHINS Local Developments in Public Health Information Bulletin

The annual PHINS seminar is a very popular event and updates on national developments in public health information are now included within the annual ScotPHO e-Newsletter. However, we are aware that there has been little sharing of information from a local perspective since the last PHINS Local Developments in Public Health Information bulletin several years ago. Feedback from a series of public health intelligence stakeholder events coordinated by ScotPHO during summer 2016, in response to the Scottish Government's Public Health Review, also highlighted demand for greater sharing of public health information from a local perspective.

To address this issue, we are pleased to re-establish the PHINS bulletin to allow members to share details of their own local projects and events. Please use the hyperlink below to view / download the latest PHINS bulletin published in April 2017. Many thanks to all our colleagues who submitted details of their work.
