Latest News

This month at RHE we are introducing online enhancements to our website services including forum upgrades and improved account settings. We are introducing a new Single Sign On which will allow our users to move seamlessly between all our websites including RHE forums, RIAMS, HHCC and housinghealth.com. This will mean that you will only need to remember one set of login details for all these websites and for any websites we launch in the future. Forum improvements include a RIAMS Support forum for editorial and systems questions to help users get the most out of RIAMS.

Places on the Hertfordshire Public Health Conference are now available to those outside of Hertfordshire; there are just over 50 spaces left. The event is free for those who live or work in Hertfordshire and ?50 for those who live outside. Click here to book.
