Improving the health of the entire population
Reducing health inequalities
Mission and vision statement
The Population health and Prevention programme works with many stakeholders such as Public Health England (PHE) to embed public health capacity acorss the wider NHS, public health and social care system.
This includes commissioning an appropriate number of public health specialists to meet demand and improve the public health capability of all professional healthcare staff undertaking training.
This is also achieved through commissioning education and training.
In 2014 the Five Year Forward View called for a radical upgrade in prevention and population health. The NHS Long Term Plan (2019) suggests a robust prevention agenda that aims to strengthen the role of NHS in prevention and reduction of health inequalities through
- integration of care systems
- population health management
- targeted approaches to behaviour change
