Camden and Islington Annual Public Health Report 2016/17

This year’s report looks in particular at investment in health care to prevent illness, and especially at health care that will help the NHS save money.

Finding ways to transform the health and care system and make it sustainable for the future has never felt more pressing given the current financial challenges facing the NHS and local government. Investing in preventing illness is an important part of the answer. Investing in and providing preventative care systemically and at sufficient scale, are known to have a demonstrable effect on the health and wellbeing of residents, their families and wider communities as well as reducing demand on the health and care system. This report looks especially at those preventative interventions which are shown to provide a return on money investment in the short term.

In both Islington and Camden, local health and care partnerships and strategies have a strong and clear commitment to prevention, earlier intervention, and creating resilient individuals, families and communities. Building on these strong local foundations, this report simply makes the case that further investment in prevention is needed in order to achieve a ‘radical upgrade’ in prevention and provide an improvement in health outcomes and quality of life for residents.
