Prevention Transformation fund for local authorities
We are calling on the UK Government to invest in a 'prevention transformation' fund to support the upgrading of prevention and population health services in local authorities. FPH members are telling us that they have gone to heroic lengths to deliver more with less and less, but they cannot make the radical upgrade in prevention services asked of them without additional dedicated funding to allow them to make a step change in the types of services they provide and how they provide them. This work stream will advocate for the double-running of new investment in prevention services, alongside current services that public health teams across the country already provide.
Our latest discussion paper, published in October 2018, sets out our thinking so far on why we are calling on the UK Government to support a Prevention Transformation Fund, what the fund would do, and how to pay for it. We would welcome feedback on the paper via firstname.lastname@example.org
