Must Knows for Elected Members: Prevention

How do you know that your council is doing all it can to deliver on prevention?


Lead members have a vital role in driving whole-system change – ensuring prevention is embedded in all council functions, and promoting collaboration with partners in the NHS, the wider public sector, the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector and the business sector.

Adopting the health in all policies approach (HiAP) provides a useful framework to support whole-system working across all sectors and with all partners.

Lead members are well placed to be health champions, engaging with communities to hear their priorities, and supporting them to take an active role in prevention.
