The Government is giving local authorities £16 billion over the current five-year spending review to fund public health activities and services. Local authorities shall receive over £3.1 billion in 2019/20, ring-fenced exclusively for use on public health. As part of the Public Health Grant conditions, services must have due regard for the uptake, investment and improvement of their local services. Decisions on investment in particular services are a matter for individual local authorities. Future investment will be determined by the forthcoming Spending Review.
