Introduction

About us

Responsibilities

We are responsible for:

  • making the public healthier and reducing differences between the health of different groups by promoting healthier lifestyles, advising government and supporting action by local government, the NHS and the public
  • protecting the nation from public health hazards
  • preparing for and responding to public health emergencies
  • improving the health of the whole population by sharing our information and expertise, and identifying and preparing for future public health challenges
  • supporting local authorities and the NHS to plan and provide health and social care services such as immunisation and screening programmes, and to develop the public health system and its specialist workforce
  • researching, collecting and analysing data to improve our understanding of public health challenges, and come up with answers to public health problems

We do this through world-leading science, research, knowledge and intelligence, advocacy, partnerships and providing specialist public health services.

Priorities

PHE’s strategic plan sets out how PHE intends to achieve its aims by 2025.

Our business plan outlines the actions PHE will be taking over the next year to protect and improve the public’s health and reduce inequalities.

The remit letter sets out the role the government expects PHE to play in the health and social care system in the current financial year and the priorities for PHE.

Who we are

We are an executive agency of the Department of Health and Social Care, and a distinct organisation with operational autonomy. We provide government, local government, the NHS, Parliament, industry and the public with evidence-based professional, scientific expertise and support.

We employ 5,500 staff (full-time equivalent), mostly scientists, researchers and public health professionals.

We have 8 local centres, plus an integrated region and centre for London, and 4 regions (north of England, south of England, Midlands and east of England, and London).

We work closely with public health professionals in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and internationally.

Public Health England was established on 1 April 2013 to bring together public health specialists from more than 70 organisations into a single public health service.
