Public Health England (PHE) has not made an assessment of changes in the public health grant on the health outcomes of low income households in Blackburn or England.

PHE does monitor a range of health outcomes at a national and local level through the Public Health Outcomes Framework. This framework includes monitoring health inequalities by measuring the difference in health outcomes between deprived and non-deprived areas.
