Public Health Briefings
Local Government Public Health Briefings and NICE guidance
Between 2012 and 2015 NICE developed a series of local government briefings for a range of public health topics. They have also continued to develop a range of NICE Guidance that informs public health and wider practice in supporting local residents
The Local Government Briefings been withdrawn but NICE continue to provide access to those that are current. The content remains useful to a range of people so should be considered. These are listed in this table.
These briefings are meant for local authorities and their partner organisations in the health and voluntary sectors, in particular, those involved with health and wellbeing boards. They will be relevant to:
local authority officers and Councillors
directors of public health
directors of adult social care and children's services
members of local authority scrutiny committees
The briefings may also be used alongside the local joint strategic needs assessment to support the development of joint health and wellbeing strategies.
