Public Health Outcomes
Oral Answers to Questions — Health
Anne Milton (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Public Health), Health; Guildford, Conservative)
This year, we published our public health outcomes framework, which will last from 2013 to 2016. It sets out two high-level outcomes: to increase healthy life expectancy and to reduce differences in life expectancy and healthy life expectancy between communities. This is the first time that a Government have published a public health outcomes framework, and the first time that there has been ring-fenced money for public health.
