Public Health Dashboard

As part of a wider government commitment to support greater transparency across the public sector, Public Health England (PHE) has published a new local authority public health dashboard. The dashboard will support local councillors and senior council officers in making decisions on how they prioritise resources across a range of public health service areas. As a new tool, PHE is publishing an initial version now and seeking suggestions to improve it so that we can launch it in full in the summer of 2018. It uses existing published data and therefore complements the range of tools PHE provides to support local government in their role as the local leaders for the public’s health. This dashboard will be helpful in raising the profile of public health services locally and ultimately having a positive impact on health outcomes. So although the information is aimed at decision makers, the data is publicly available allowing local people to get better informed about their council’s public health services.
