Review recommends that councils and the NHS work more closely to co-commission public health services, including sexual and reproductive health services.
Conducted by the Department of Health and Social Care, the review recommends that the NHS should work more closely with local authorities on public health so that commissioning is more joined-up and prevention is embedded into a wider range of health services.
Speaking at the 2019 Jephcott Lecture at the Royal Society of Medicine on Thursday 6 June, Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed that the review had found that local authorities take an active and efficient approach to commissioning services. Mr. Hancock also praised the work of local councils in commissioning public health services and announced that they would continue to take the lead in this area.
