Essex County Council Public Health Accelerator Bids (PHAB) grant programme

Essex County Council have launched the small grants element of their new £7.5 million grant scheme, the Essex Public Health Accelerator Bids (PHAB) programme.

Organisations can now apply for a small grant between £500 and £15,000 to deliver a project that aligns closely with the priorities in the new Essex Wellbeing, Public Health and Communities Business Plan. You can read the plan here:  Wellbeing, Public Health and Communities business plan .

There is no set deadline for submission of small grants, but this may change depending on the volume of small grant applications we receive.

Essex County Council launched the major grants element of PHAB during the summer, and in Round 1 they received 75 expressions of interest. These have been carefully assessed, and a number have been invited to submit a second stage application. The first major grants will be awarded at the beginning of November. Some expressions of interest have been deferred to seek further clarification and information from applicants. Round 2 of the major grant’s element opens on Monday 6 November and closes on Friday 1 December.

More information on the PHAB programme, including the link to application forms, is available at:  www.essex.gov.uk/phab .

Working for Essex

Economy, Investment and Public Health

essex public health business plan

Economy, Investment and Public Health is here to make a long lasting and positive impact on the outcomes of residents, communities and businesses across Essex. We now have a real opportunity to be greater than the sum of our parts and develop a holistic approach to places that ensures Essex remains  the  place to live, work and enjoy – now and in the future.

Our ambition is not only to continue to provide great services but also to improve the outcomes for the people of Essex. We know that the life chances of residents, and the performance of businesses, are influenced by a wide range of factors, including the health and wellbeing of the individual, the quality of the natural environment and the provision of skills. Economy, Investment and Public Health reflects this wide range of influences and recognises that four key ambitions must be realised in order to make Essex a prosperous and inclusive place to live and work. We welcome those with the talent to deliver on our ambitions.

Roles within Economy, Investment and Public Health

Property, investment & delivery, sustainable growth, wellbeing, public health & communities.

The Property, Investment & Delivery function develops the Council’s ambitious capital programme (over £1.5 billion in the next five years) and builds new capital infrastructure across Essex. This includes delivering new assets such as schools and roads, as well as serving and maintaining the Council’s £1.7 billion estate. This estate covers around 350 buildings – from libraries to County Hall – and roughly 1,500 sites ranging from residential care to country parks and schools. The function includes Essex Housing which seeks to redevelop public sector land and provide sustainable homes for residents, including independent living accommodation for vulnerable adults.

The function also delivers consultancy advice across the UK – Place Services – which covers historic, natural and built environmental services.

Sustainable Growth supports the strategic role the council plays in building a brighter future for Essex where businesses can thrive, and residents are able to access opportunities. Here, our high-calibre professionals are working closely with local businesses, residents, and our public sector partners to create a greener, fairer and more productive economy.

There’s a diverse range of teams in Sustainable Growth. They include:

  • Localities and Place Renewal

  • Shaping skills provision and supporting all Essex residents to access high quality employment opportunities
  • Driving the industry sectors of both now and tomorrow, enabling businesses to diversify, innovate and grow
  • Creating and marketing the conditions for growth that will unlock new inward investment into the county and support our local businesses, town centres and high streets
  • Unlocking new communities through high quality planning, housing and the physical and digital infrastructure that makes Essex a great place to live
  • Supporting the transition to a net zero carbon economy by 2030, including green skills programmes for residents, retrofitting our estates and developing proposals for innovative green energy hubs and manufacturing facilities

In today’s turbulent and financially stressful times, public health managers need business planning skills. They need to become “civic entrepreneurs,” who can creatively finance and manage needed programs using business school savvy.

Public Health Business Planning: A Practical Guide is based on the curriculum of the highly successful Management Academy for Public Health, offered by the Kenan-Flagler Business School and the School of Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A Lewin Group evaluation showed that teams of Management Academy graduates have generated millions of dollars in revenue for local agencies through implementing business plans.

This book teaches what it means to use entrepreneurial strategies for social good, and key business planning skills such as:

Assessment and strategic planning.

Program planning, implementation, and evaluation.

Financial planning and budgeting.

Market research and social marketing.

Strategies for getting funded including business writing and speaking.

Project management and business plan execution strategies.

Contents include:

Defining public health entrepreneurial business planning.

The parts of a public health business plan.

Definition of plan.

Industry analysis.

Demonstration of need and target market.

Competitors and partners.

Project operations.

Evaluation.

Risks, exit plan, and sustainability.

Financial planning.

The feasibility plan.

Essex Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2018-2022

Essex county council.

Every local area must have a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy setting out the priorities identified through the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) that local government, the NHS and other partners will deliver together through the Health and Wellbeing Board. The JHWS is intended to set ‘a small number of key strategic priorities for action’, where there is an opportunity for partners working through the Health and Wellbeing Board to ‘have a real impact’ through local initiatives and action and leading to an improvement in health and wellbeing outcomes and a reduction in health inequalities. The JHWS is jointly owned by partners through the Essex Health and Wellbeing Board, the District, Borough and City Councils’ HWB Partnership Boards, the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Safeguarding Boards and the voluntary and community sector.

  • And importantly, what skills, approaches, interventions, actions can help resist the detrimental forces that undermine health and well-being and realise the promises of “health for all” and “leave no one behind” to achieve fairer, equitable, and healthier societies?

You'll benefit from the opportunity to pursue this course through one of two specialist pathways. Each pathway will share some core modules but allow flexibility for you to select modules that are in line with your interests and employment. You can either opt to follow our ‘Policy and Systems' pathway which has been designed with an emphasis on preparing you for entering the workforce with strong evidence-based research and planning skills, or our ‘Intersectional Inequalities and Determinants' pathway which will advance your interdisciplinary skills in examining and tackling inequalities in the distribution of determinants of health and diseases.

  • You'll gain practical knowledge and transferable research and evaluation skills necessary for pursuing a career in public health policy and practice.
  • You'll enhance your research skills by applying theoretical and methodological learnings to real life public health challenges.
  • You'll develop the analytical and methodological skills necessary for applying an innovative intersectional lens to examine policy and health inequalities.

Our expert staff

Essex is home to wide-ranging methodological, disciplinary, and subject area expertise. The degree will be located in the Interdisciplinary Research and Practice Division within the School of Health and Social Care. It will draw on eminent scholars from diverse subject areas within the School and across, including the renowned Human Rights Centre, the Law Faculty, and the ISER institute. You will also benefit from the dynamic networks of academic, policy, and practitioner communities that our staff work closely with, in the UK, Europe, and internationally.

Alex is a qualitative researcher with research interests in the health and social inequalities experienced by disabled people – as well as innovations in health and social care to address these inequalities. Recent work is examining the intersections of disability and gender, and reproductive health and rights. In exploring these issues, Alex has developed expertise in the use of creative and participatory methodologies to elicit the views and experiences of people who may be considered marginalised or whose narratives often go unheard. She is particularly interested in developing innovative and creative methods to elicit ‘unspeakable' health experiences – including for people who are nonverbal, or for those seeking to explore or describe a particular experience or life event that is difficult to express in words.

Specialist facilities

We offer excellent physical and online resources in terms of libraries, computer labs, datasets, archives, and other research materials.

Your future

Uk entry requirements.

We will consider applicants with a 2:2 honours degree, or international equivalent, in a medical, health, social care or social sciences discipline.

Applicants with a 3rd class degree, or a 2:2 degree in any other discipline, will be considered where they can demonstrate at least 1 year's relevant experience in the field of health policy and systems, or in the development sector working on health and care issues, or in a healthcare setting. This will be assessed based on information provided at the application stage (for example, in a CV, reference, or other proofs of employment).

International & EU entry requirements

We accept a wide range of qualifications from applicants studying in the EU and other countries. Get in touch with any questions you may have about the qualifications we accept. Remember to tell us about the qualifications you have already completed or are currently taking.

Sorry, the entry requirements for the country that you have selected are not available here. Please select your country page where you'll find this information.

English language requirements

If you do not meet our IELTS requirements then you may be able to complete a pre-sessional English pathway that enables you to start your course without retaking IELTS.

Course structure

Our research-led teaching is continually evolving to address the latest challenges and breakthroughs in the field. The following modules are based on the current course structure and may change in response to new curriculum developments and innovation.

We understand that deciding where and what to study is a very important decision for you. We'll make all reasonable efforts to provide you with the courses, services and facilities as described on our website and in line with your contract with us. However, if we need to make material changes, for example due to significant disruption, we'll let our applicants and students know as soon as possible.

Our research-led teaching is continually evolving to address the latest challenges and breakthroughs in the field. The course content is therefore reviewed on an annual basis to ensure our courses remain up-to-date so modules listed are subject to change.

Components are the blocks of study that make up your course. A component may have a set module which you must study, or a number of modules from which you can choose.

Each component has a status and carries a certain number of credits towards your qualification.

The modules that are available for you to choose for each component will depend on several factors, including which modules you have chosen for other components, which modules you have completed in previous years of your course, and which term the module is taught in.

Modules are the individual units of study for your course. Each module has its own set of learning outcomes and assessment criteria and also carries a certain number of credits.

In most cases you will study one module per component, but in some cases you may need to study more than one module. For example, a 30-credit component may comprise of either one 30-credit module, or two 15-credit modules, depending on the options available.

Modules may be taught at different times of the year and by a different department or school to the one your course is primarily based in. You can find this information from the module code . For example, the module code HR100-4-FY means:

COMPONENT 04: COMPULSORY

The global health priorities established in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have helped bring the importance of global health governance to the fore of global health scholarship. More recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on global public health governance, exposing the systemic weaknesses in the global health architecture and demonstrating how power and resource imbalances impact on global health policy, global health equity and population health. The global health landscape is shaped by centuries old interactions and structures. The past few decades have brought dramatic change shaped by cross-border flows of capital, ideas, technology intermediated through the complex interaction between global, national and local actors and institutions. This module provides an introduction to the fundamentals of global public health governance by focusing on health-related issues that transcend national boundaries and the differential impacts of globalization on health. It introduces essential concepts from the social sciences, including political science, sociology and law. It includes critical scholarship on interactions between global and local actors to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for critically exploring key questions including who governs global health, which states, institutions and other entities finances global health, who sets priorities for global health and who is accountable for delivering on global health commitments. It provides an introduction to understanding the diverse social, economic and political forces which shape how and why some important health related challenges are addressed through global health policies, including the SDGs, and others are not.

COMPONENT 05: COMPULSORY

The module will introduce you to the skills required for ethical practice in the context of safeguarding and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults. The module also aims to introduce you to the skills related to legislation and regulation including advocacy and legal research skills. You will have the opportunity to explore the process of ethical decision-making alongside students and tutors from the Law Clinic. Law, and Health and Social Care staff will be making use of the giving voice to values approach which focuses on empowering decision making for transformational leadership.

View Social Determinants of Health on our Module Directory

COMPONENT 06: COMPULSORY

This module introduces you to epidemiology as an essential science of global public health. It will contribute to your understanding of the fundamental importance of studying the determinants and distribution of disease frequency in human populations throughout the world to address global health issues. This module also challenges you to explore how and why evidence and data play a crucial role in informing public health policy, strategy, leadership, service provision and coordination of action for health. It examines the different ways in which data can be collected, analysed, and interpreted so you are better equipped to critique research and unpack hidden bias. The module will also help you to develop an understanding of which research methods are most appropriate for addressing specific research questions and global health issues by highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of different types of data. Finally, it will guide you to develop the skills to assess the most suitable research methods for a given research question, understanding that the data collected has implications for the type of analysis that can be carried out and the types of question that can be answered with that data.
