AIM: To support Directors of Public Health (DsPH) to meet their local responsibilities in the context of reduced resources, changes to council funding through business rates retention, system transformation in the form of devolution and STPs
This workstream brings together interrelated issues of health & care devolution in London, sustainability and transformation planning and finance. There are also strong links to the prevention and early intervention agenda, including the new London Prevention Partnership Board.
Our current objectives are to:
- Support DsPH to meet their local responsibilities in the context of COVID-19 and maintain system resilience
- Continue to advocate for a needs based approach to public health funding in London, recognizing the funding impact of COVID-19
- Identify opportunities for shared learning on how prevention and health equity is delivered as part of ICSs, including the narrative around savings.
- Support local boroughs by developing the capacity of the Healthcare Public Health borough Consultant network
