Must knows: Children's public health transfer

published by LGA

29 September 2015

There is overwhelming evidence that tells us that the first few years in children's lives shape their future development, and influence how well children do at school, their ongoing health and wellbeing and their achievements later in life. Councils now have a statutory responsibility for commissioning children's public health services for children aged 0-5 following the transfer of these responsibilities from the NHS on 1 October 2015. This joins up with the much larger transfer of public health functions to local government which included responsibility for 5-19 year olds, which took place on 1 April 2013.
