Public Health England need to find a “clear direction” says Health Commitee

February 26, 2014 10:16 am

The Health Committee has surmised that Public Health England (PHE) need to find a “clear direction” in order to effectively look after the nation’s public health interests.

In a report following the Health Committee’s first meeting with PHE, Committee Chair Stephen Dorrell MP said: “In April 2013 PHE was created to put public health at the heart of policy making but we are concerned that PHE has not yet found its voice”.

Parliament created PHE as an independent voice to champion the policies that can make a difference to the nation’s health, but Dorrell slammed the organisation saying it has not yet “developed a clear set of priorities”.

The Health Committee’s inquiry examined how PHE has set about establishing its policy priorities and programme of work.
