Weekly message from the Chief Executive of Public Health England.



The responsibilities of the former National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse have been fully incorporated within PHE. Their field teams are embedded in our centres across England, working as they always have done with local authorities, the local NHS, criminal justice partners and with providers.

PHE is privileged to have the role of reporting progress on the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF).

On Tuesday we had an executive to executive seminar with our counterparts in NHS England to discuss their ‘Call to Action’ and our developing joint plans for a health and wellbeing framework for England.

And finally, in partnership with Health Education England and the Department of Health, we have commissioned a survey, running this month, of the consultant and public health specialist workforce.
