£5.45bn budget for local public health

11th January 2013

A £5.45 billion local public health budget, which will be ring-fenced for two years, has been announced by the health secretary Jeremy Hunt.

Following advice from the independent Advisory Committee on Resource Allocation group, funding will be specifically targeted at areas with the worst health outcomes. The government says that ring-fencing the budget for two years will give local authorities a clearer long-term understanding of their future funding as they prepare to take on their new responsibilities from April of taking the lead for improving the health of their local communities.
