12 July 2017, Professor John Middleton

Prof John Middleton, President, UK Faculty of Public Health, said: "Public health services are there to protect and promote the health and wellbeing of our local populations.  Our members are telling us that these planned cuts will make it more likely that people will turn up at A&E or end up in hospital. Our message to the new government is that prevention is better than cure.  If we are to tackle the NHS crisis properly, then we will need to invest more in public health services across the country to keep more people well and out of hospital."
