What is public health?

Public Health Liverpool aims to improve the health and wellbeing of all our residents with a focus on preventing ill health.  We commission both preventative and treatment services, working across the council and with the NHS and other partners.

Primary functions include:

We also encourage people to live healthier lifestyles with a range of advice on stopping smoking, drinking less and how to enjoy being active:

Through the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA), we identify the key issues affecting the health and wellbeing of our residents, both now and in the future.  The JSNA forms the basis of all commissioning plans across health, social care, public health and children's services. This ongoing process includes reviewing a wide range of information and data, as well as service user and community views.
