Local authorities will receive over £3.1 billion in 2019/20 for use on public health. Future funding priorities will be determined through the Spending Review process. In its Long Term Plan, the National Health Service has already committed to strengthen action on prevention and health inequalities. All local health systems will be expected to set out in 2019 how they will reduce health inequalities by 2023/24 and 2028/29.
