Letter from the Deputy Director, Legislation and Environmental Hazards Health Protection Division
I write to inform you that a consultation on draft health protection regulations has been launched on the Department of Health website. As an organisation with an interest in this area of work, you are invited to comment on the draft regulations, which are fully explained in the consultation document. The document presents specific questions concerning issues that we are seeking views on – however, more general comments are also very welcome.
You may wish to note that the consultation does not cover “port health” aspects, which will be the subject of a later consultation exercise.
The consultation closing date and the deadline to send responses in is 30 September 2009.
The draft regulations, consultation document, impact assessments, and form for responding to the consultation can be found on the DH website at this address:
The consultation response form can be filled out electronically and returned to us at this email address (email@example.com). We would prefer forms to be submitted electronically. Alternatively, you can post your response to:
