Healthcare Public Health

We work to improve population health, reduce premature mortality and reduce inequalities in health outcomes relating to healthcare interventions.

We do this through provision of evidence-based advice on sustainable and effective health and care services. For example, we review evidence to advise on which treatments would be most effective and affordable for our population.

Healthcare Public Health

NoPrioriitesTime scale for Completion
59 Reduce activity and spend on procedures which have limited clinical impact March 2018
Quarter 1:
So far, 13 policies have been implemented which will reduce the number of procedures which have little impact on health and wellbeing. Some of these procedures will no longer be routinely offered, others will be provided for those patients whose clinical circumstances mean that they are likely to get greater benefit. We are already seeing the impact of this work in terms of freeing up of surgical or medical time which can now be used to see and treat patients with greater need.

A further 12 policies have been completed during quarter 2.
