Public health matters
This is the official blog of Public Health England, updating with new content every Monday and Wednesday afternoon.
Public Health England’s mission is to protect and improve the nation’s health and to address inequalities through working with national and local government, the NHS, industry and the voluntary and community sector. Public Health England is an operationally autonomous executive agency of the Department of Health.
We’ll give you regular updates from Public Health England’s directors and other experts about all matters related to public health and the public’s health, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at why we do the work we do and take the positions we take. We’ll also be inviting you to discuss your views on our programmes and positions with us.
