Public health

Public Health is about helping people to stay healthy and protecting them from threats to their health.

It supports people to make healthier choices and aims to minimise the risk and impact of illness.

Key responsibilities for public health include commissioning NHS Health Checks, sexual health services, the National Child Measurement Programme and interventions to prevent and manage obesity, smoking, drug and alcohol abuse. A further duty is for the Director of Public Health to publish an annual report on population health.

The 2015 Annual Public Health Report is focused on mental health and wellbeing in Camden and Islington, with particular attention paid to mental health conditions in Camden & Islington, mental health across the life course and mental health services:
