Public health transformation seven years on: prevention in neighbourhood, place and system

The LGA’s 2020 public health annual report showcases examples from 10 areas that demonstrate what can be achieved by public health operating across local government and working closely with the NHS and a wide range of local and system partners.

The examples are from councils across England covering both rural and urban environments and with varying degrees of deprivation and affluence. The examples were selected to give a spread of geography and topic, and, as usual, many more excellent examples were submitted and could have been included had there been space.

The report identifies the main themes in public health in 2019/20 based on information from the case studies and other case study based reports undertaken by the LGA on the topics of health and wellbeing, particularly What a difference a place makes which includes 22 snapshots of health and wellbeing boards (HWBs).
