The publication also shows how public health is taking responsibility for its own improvement. By utilising peer challenges, public health is shining a light on how effectively it operates – both within councils and as part of the wider local health and wellbeing system.

With the growing impetus on prevention and integration, it is essential that public health is well-placed to drive the ‘health in all policies’ approach and to ensure that improving health and wellbeing, and tackling health inequalities, are everyone’s business.
