In this report, the government sets out reforms to the public health system in England and invite you to share your insights and experience to help them with the next stages of our work. Your feedback will help to shape the future of the public health system.
This update focuses on structural reforms, which are a vital enabler of delivering better and more equal outcomes on public health, but they are just one aspect of public health reform. Its focus is the public health system for England, but chapter two highlights the interaction with important UK-wide elements of our health protection response.
A further update will be published later in 2021 with final details on design, structure and implementation, and it will also set out government's plans for the policies, delivery and outcomes they want this reformed system to drive and deliver.
