Detail of outcome
The responses we received showed a high level of agreement on the design of the scheme. Respondents wanted “NHS Health Checks” as the local default indicator for the 2014 to 2015 pilot scheme rather than the “smoking” indicator. We have amended the scheme accordingly.
Of the 69 responses, 61 were from upper tier local authorities (out of 152 authorities) and 8 were from health system leaders and the voluntary sector.

Seeks views on the technical design of the Health Premium Incentive Scheme and public health funding allocations for 2015 to 2016.
We are asking for views on plans for the introduction of the Health Premium Incentive Scheme (HPIS), which rewards local authorities for public health improvements made in line with selected indicators from the public health Outcomes Framework.
The aspects of the scheme we are consulting on include the technical design of the scheme and the chosen indicators from the Outcomes Framework that will reward public health improvements. We are also seeking views on technical aspects of public health funding allocations for 2015 to 2016.
Allocations for public health funding for 2015 to 2016 are available in annex B of the consultation document.
This consultation is mainly aimed at local authority commissioners and financial directors, directors of public health and local representative bodies e.g. Health and Wellbeing Boards.
