Public health transformation five years on

The theme for this year’s report is transformation. The eight case studies in this report show the wide range of ways in which public health is transforming how it operates.

Public health has been part of local government for five years now. We are well beyond the stage at which public health teams have ‘bedded in’ to local authorities and at which local authorities have learned what public health is all about. Born of the synergy between the two, we should now expect to see significant changes in the way local government carries on its business; and significant changes in the understanding of public health teams of the potential breadth and depth of their reach in tackling the social determinants of health. In this year’s annual report this has proved to be the case.
