Who should take action?
The guideline is for commissioners, managers and practitioners with public health or social care as part of their remit working in the NHS, local authorities and the wider public, private, voluntary and community sectors. It is also aimed at:
people working in and managing early years settings, educational settings (including preschool, primary and secondary schools) and leisure environments
employers and managers (including public sector organisations)
managers and practitioners working in residential or day care settings
others with a duty of care for people.
In addition, it will be of interest to groups at increased risk of low vitamin D status or skin cancer, their families and carers and other members of the public.
