Public health post-2013 inquiry


After taking on responsibility for public health, local authorities were dealt an in-year cut of £200 million last year and now face further real terms cuts to public health budgets. Cuts to public health and the front line services they deliver are a false economy as they not only add to the future costs of health and social care but risk widening health inequalities, says the Health Committee in its report on Public health post-2013.
