Public Health & Wellbeing Review 2016

Local authorities are responsible for improving the health of their local population and reducing health inequalities but the Public Health Grant set by central government for South Gloucestershire faces an overall 17% reduction over the next four years. In addition South Gloucestershire Council is delivering a programme of savings as part of its Council Savings Programme (CSP).

The cumulative impact of the reduction in the Public Health grant and support for the CSP is that by 2020/21 total funding for public health will have reduced by about one third since 2013 (when public health teams moved from the NHS to local authorities).

In order to achieve this level of savings, it is felt that the most appropriate way forward is to undertake a comprehensive review across South Gloucestershire Council’s Public Health and Wellbeing Division. This is to ensure that our priorities, our structure and the services we deliver, both directly and through our commissioning arrangements, continue to be fit for purpose and meet the needs of our population.

Please take some time to read the Consultation Paper and accompanying Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA) before completing the online survey or paper version to tell us your views about the priorities and structure being proposed.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
