Evaluating preventative investments in public health in England
20 May 2019
In this report, Public Health England and Chartered Institute for Public Finance and Accountancy argue that a culture change in the way local organisations evaluate long-term investment in prevention is key to making the most of the proposed shift to Integrated Care Systems by 2021. The overall ambition is to change the way that prevention is considered – it should be viewed and treated as an investment, and properly reported as such. Moving forward, PHE and CIPFA are interested in supporting and challenging finance professionals to pick up these ideas and integrate them into everyday practice.
