City’s public health set for move back to City Council

Monday, January 23, 2012

The NHS will undergo some big changes over the next 12-months - much of the media’s attention has been on how GPs and other health professionals will be given control of spending the bulk of NHS funds. However, another major change will be the move of public health out of the NHS and back to the City Council 39 years after it was transferred to the NHS.

Local MP Meg Munn recently met Sheffield’s Director of Public Health, Dr Jeremy Wight, to find out how plans for the move are shaping up. She learnt that whilst most of the responsibilities that fall under Dr Wight’s remit will go to Sheffield City Council, some will move to a new organisation called ‘Public Health England’.

The budgets for local public health services are expected to be announced early in 2012. Sheffield will then know how much money it will have for these services, which range from Stop Smoking services to supporting major incidents. Plans for the move have been made and the City Council and NHS Sheffield are already working closely together.

Meg said:

“With Public Health moving back to Sheffield City Council it will be crucial for the team to retain their links with the NHS especially the clinicians responsible for spending the majority of health funding in the city. This will ensure funds continue to help to address local health needs.”
