Release of draft Local Authority Public Health Contract
At the 14th NHS Health Check Learning Network Event on 17th July we promised we would circulate the draft Local Authority Public Health Contract as soon as it was released by the Public Health Policy and Strategy Unit at Department of Health.
The Public Health Policy and Strategy Unit is consulting on the contract and a final version will be published later this year.
Please note that it is not mandatory for Local Authorities to use this contract.
The document can now be viewed here.
All operational queries about the NHS Health Check programme, or questions about the Learning Network should be directed to Eleanor Kent-Dyson. Policy queries should continue to be directed to the NHS Health Check team at the Department of Health using their dedicated mailbox .
