Public Health England (PHE) has worked with partners to identify preventative actions that can improve people’s health, support quality improvement and potentially save the NHS and the wider system money. This menu details interventions that are estimated to give a return on investment (ROI) and can demonstrate cost-savings to the health and care system over a 5 year period.

This document aims to support local planning processes and can be used to inform local commissioning strategies and plans. It follows publication of the NHS shared planning guidance and the Commissioning for Quality and Innovation scheme for 2017 to 2019.

This is a refresh to an earlier version and has been updated with new modelling information and links to new ROI tools. It is based on best available evidence and data. This is a work in progress and local feedback via will help inform the development of future PHE products.
