Local public health teams are facing increasingly complex and challenging decisions over what services to invest in and disinvest from. The Prioritisation Framework is designed to help local authorities conduct a systematic prioritisation exercise, by greatly reducing the burden and complexity of the task.
The approach is based on Multi Criteria Decision Analysis, a recognised decision support technique which has been successfully used in a variety of contexts.
Throughout the tool, users are provided with extensive guidance and links to other relevant resources. A supporting materials pack is available from the PHE Health Economics team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional PHE Centre support for local authorities using the Prioritisation Framework will be launched, starting with East Midlands, north-east, Yorkshire and Humber and north-west. Interested teams within those areas should contact their PHE Centres for further details.
