Detail

In this document Public Health England publishes 7 priorities for the next 5 years, having looked closely at the evidence to determine where it can most effectively focus its efforts.

This document sets out our commitment to support our partners with a programme of work that:

  • ensures credible, evidence-based advice is available on the key issues relating to the public’s health
  • develops our ability to engage and support the public in making healthier choices
  • mobilises support for broader action on improving the public’s health

What we are looking to stimulate is a new movement that focuses on creating and protecting health, not only treating ill health.

This document is an invitation to our colleagues across the health professions, local and national government, the voluntary and community sector and the public, to join us in applying the evidence of what we know works to achieve the step-change in the nation’s health that we all seek.

The document refers to risk factor based modelling work available from the UK Health Forum.
