Public health post-2013
This report is the result of a short inquiry on the impact of the Health and Social Care Act reforms on the public health landscape. It warns of risks of widening health inequalities and a false economy due to cuts in local authority and public health budgets. It calls for a Cabinet Officer minister to be given specific responsibility for embedding health across all areas of government policy at a national level and for greater and bolder action to tackle public health issues such as childhood obesity.
