Healthy Lives, Healthy People: Update and Way Forward

'Healthy Lives, Healthy People: Update and Way Forward (Cm. 8134)' outlines the Government's vision for a future Public Health service.
Communities will play a key role in the new system, which will have a clear focus on preventing and reducing inequalities and will work across Government to address the wider social determinants of health.
Part of developing this new system will entail clarifying the new leadership role for local authorities and their directors of public health, across health improvement, health protection and population health advice to the National Health Service (NHS). Also establishing a new integrated public health service, Public Health England, to drive improvements in health and protect against health threats.
Public Health England will be an executive agency of the Department of Health (DH), providing greater operational independence within a structure that is accountable to the Health Secretary; and clear principles for emergency preparedness, resilience and response.
The new system will integrate the three pillars of public health:
(i) Health protection
(ii) Health improvement
(iii) Health services.
