Public Health Outcomes Framework (Department of Health, England)

Healthy lives, healthy people: Improving outcomes and supporting transparency

Public Health Outcomes Framework

January, 2012

Department of Health

The Government has published its Public Health Outcomes Framework. The framework concentrates on two high-level outcomes to be achieved across the public health system: increased healthy life expectancy; and reduced differences in life expectancy and healthy life expectancy between communities. Full responsibility will pass to Local Authorities in April 2013 and they will be judged against a range of measures for example: children in poverty, fuel poverty, sustainable development management plans and utilisation of green space for exercise. A set of supporting public health indicators has also been developed to “help focus understanding of progress year by year nationally and locally on those things that matter most to public health”.
