Abstract The Association of Directors of Public Health for London (ADPH London) represents Directors of Public Health in London's 32 local authorities and the city of London.  It supports its members to improve and protect the health of their local populations through sharing best practice, collaborating on cross-borough issues and developing professional peer networks. In 2015 ADPH London developed a peer led sector led improvement programme (SLI). This is an approach to improvement where local authorities help each other to continuously improve. SLI is fundamental in improving health, reducing health inequalities and mitigating the impact of reducing public sector resources.   As part of the SLI programme ADPH London has have carried out two thematic reviews on tobacco control and smoking cessation and childhood obesity.    The process for this included local self-assessment, collation of data and public health teams coming together for peer review workshops. The programme as a whole has been seen to have clear added value in terms of developing a culture of working together to challenge each other. The initial thematic review on tobacco completed in 2015 has led to a number of areas of collaborative work across the sector including action groups around emerging models of smoking cessation and supporting smokers in the healthcare system. Additionally an online sharing platform was developed in response to enthusiasm to improve the flow of information and ideas exchange across Public Health Teams and also other stakeholders. Similarly the childhood obesity thematic review has galvanised a more collaborative approach.
