Presentation: Public Health, Trauma and Road Safety: A Holistic Approach to Partnership Working
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership has been redeveloped over the last two years to integrate public health, trauma and victim support services into the road safety partnership alongside the traditional emergency service and highway authority partners.
The presentation will cover why this holistic approach is important, how the integration has been managed (recognising some of the challenges) and look at some of the work this is enabling us to undertake going forward.
