I would like to start by thanking our Members and the PHSS Management Committee for their support, hard work and dedication during 2021.We continued to see a changing world throughout this year, and the need to adapt to different working practices. We do hope that as we move into 2022, we will be able to resume hosting face to face events to facilitate the much-valued networking and industry engagements that the PHSS brings.


During 2021 we announced that Graham Steele will become the new Editor in Chief, from October onwards. We would like to thank Kay for all her dedication and efforts over the recent years in bringing the Journal to where it is now. We were also pleased to welcome Rossen Doney to the Editorial Board.

PHSS Events

Following a successful year in 2020 of hosting virtual events we continued this approach for 2021, to ensure that we could maintain the engagement with membership and industry, whilst being cognizant of Covid restrictions and managing expectations. I am really pleased with the programme that we were able to deliver during 2021 and thank everyone who was involved in preparing, facilitating, and delivering each one.
