The UKSBM wishes to regularly respond to relevant consultations to provide expertise, evidence and perspectives in behavioural medicine on behalf of its members. The UKSBM welcomes contributions from any members wishing to responses to consultations. All calls will be posted online with an open invitation to members to contribute to the production of a response from the UKSBM. Member contributions to consultations will be recognised with the title of UKSBM Consultations Advisor. 

If you would like to lead or contribute to a response to a consultation or suggest a consultation that you think we should respond to please contact the UKSBM Fellow


Open consultations

The Department of Health and Social Care is seeking views on its plans to  ‘restrict promotions of food and drink that is high in fat, sugar and salt’ and we would like to respond to this consultation as a society.

The document sets out 50+ questions which are of interest to the government but we don’t expect anyone to provide input to all of them!  We will take on-board any information from our members and compile it into a collective response, so any feedback you can provide to individual questions is useful and welcomed.  Ideally, feedback should be supported by reference to research or other forms of evidence such as practice guidelines.

Any input or questions should be sent to by 28 February 2019 at the latest.
