Public Health England new central hub

Public Health England has been given the go-ahead to create a world-leading public health science campus at Harlow in Essex.

PHE Harlow, as the site will be known, is expected to employ up to 2,750 people by 2024, with scope for further expansion. The £400m campus will see PHE relocate from facilities at Porton in Wiltshire, Colindale in north London, as well as its central London headquarters to a single centre of excellence for public health research, health improvement and protection. Building work is expected to start in 2019 with phased occupation starting in 2021.
