Cabinet received a report presenting the annual report of the Director of Public Health.


It was confirmed that it was a statutory duty of the Director of Public Health to prepare an annual report. This particular report focussed on the importance of place to health.


With the agreement of the Chairman, Councillor House addressed Cabinet. Welcoming an interesting report with useful statistics, he questioned the impact of austerity on public health and the relationship with other Council services.


The Executive Member for Public Health assured Cabinet that the public health team worked in close partnership with all County Council departments to ensure the maximisation of service delivery. Furthermore that details of all of the different ways in which public health was engaged with County Council activities would require a separate report. Cabinet acknowledged that this was reflective of the cross departmental approach to service delivery across the organisation and cited a number of examples.


The recommendations in the report were considered and agreed. The decision record is attached.
