The Chief Port Health Inspector is very pleased to announce that Sally Johnson will take up her new role as Principal Port Health Inspector from 1 January 2017.
It is with great sadness I report Roy's passing on 6 June 2017. Roy retired as Chief Port Health Inspector in 2002 after 21 years in post. He maintained his passion for port health and had several interesting historical articles on the subject published. I had the pleasure of knowing Roy for nearly 50 years and will miss him greatly. I know that our Board Members and other colleagues past and present will join with me in sending sincere condolences to his family and partner.

Following the UK referendum decision of 23 June 2016 to leave the EU we await further clarity on the implications and changes to the UK legal framework under which we work.
For example, the control of imported food is based on EU legislation. It is not yet clear how this may change. We are informed that any changes will be subject to a lengthy consultation period. For the forseeable future the current EU based UK legislation remains in force.
