The Role of Prevention in the NHS

FPH has received an award from the Health Foundation to deliver a project examining the role of prevention in the NHS. The project aims to:

1) Build a better understanding of how the NHS currently delivers prevention

2) Showcase what 'good' prevention in NHS settings looks like

3) Explore ways that the NHS can maximise or expand its prevention and improvement role

4) Determine prevention priorities for NHS leaders and clinicians to consider and champion

Current priorities

FPH is keen to feed in to the development of the NHS 10-year plan in as helpful way as possible, reflecting especially the voices of our membership who work in NHS settings. 


FPH commissioned the Evidence Centre to research how the NHS is currently delivering prevention, explore its impacts, and examine its barriers and enablers. You can read the full report here. 

We also completed a review of the grey literature, which you can read here.
