Local Government Briefings
The Local Government Reference Group advises NICE about its new products: Local Government Public Health Briefings. The committee is chaired by a former local authority Chief Executive, and the members include councillors (elected members), council officers, community representatives and Directors of Public Health. From April 2014 the committee will also include representatives with a background in social care.
The new arrangements for public health offer the opportunity for a more integrated public health system led by Directors of Public Health, elected members and senior officers. Each of these groups will need access to the best available evidence-based information about effective and cost effective public health activity, which will help improve the health of their communities.
NICE is uniquely equipped to provide independent action-focused and evidence-based public health advice to local government and it will do so through the Local Government Public Health Briefings. These Briefings will help local government meet its new public health responsibilities, by focussing on a broad array of topics, populations and services across the range of arenas where local authorities will play a public health role.
If you would like to be kept informed about the publication of our briefings, or the dates of future LGRG meetings please contact NICE at email@example.com
