Funding for activities specified under the National Health Service public health functions agreement (made under section 7A of the NHS Act 2006) are included within the 2018-19 baseline for the multi-year NHS England funding agreement on NHS England resource budgets, under which the NHS budget will grow by over £20 billion, in real terms, by 2023-24.

No decision has yet been taken on the share of funds to be allocated to public health functions under the multi-year financial settlement. Decisions on investment in public health functions from this settlement are subject to the development of the long-term NHS plan, which will be brought forward through close working between the NHS and the Government, in consultation with patients and the public.
