A NEW partnership has been signed by Anglia Ruskin University and Public Health England to carry out public health research and to develop the health agency’s workforce at its new £450million campus in Essex.

It will see joint work to identify educational programmes. It will also involve collaboration to design research programmes, deliver new degree apprenticeships, and create innovative solutions to public health issues.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which will last for an initial three years, was signed at the School of Medicine at the Chelmsford campus by PHE’s Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer, Richard Gleave, and Anglia Ruskin’s Acting Vice Chancellor, Professor Roderick Watkins.
