Placing the public in public health: public health in Britain 1948- 2010

“The place of the public within public health is a critical issue,” says Alex Mold. “Whether it involves appealing to individuals to stop smoking or asking patients what they think of health services, the ‘public’ is constantly constructed and reconstructed within public health policy and practice. This project seeks to set these concerns in historical context, exploring the changing place of the public within public health in post- war Britain.” The project will explore the meaning of the public within public health, who spoke for the public, what was the role of the public, and how responsible for public health was the public thought to be. She adds: “Considering the ways in which the public were resistant to, as well as compliant with, public health points to tensions surrounding the place of the public in public health that this award aims to tease out.”
