Government response to Public Health Outcomes Framework 2019/20: a consultation

On 2 August 2019, Public Health England (PHE) published the ‘Public Health Outcomes Framework from 2019/20: a consultation. Government response.’ The document presents the results of the consultation that ran in early 2019.

The framework focuses on the two high level outcomes PHE wants to achieve across the public health system and beyond:

  1. Increased healthy life expectancy
  2. Reduced differences in life expectancy and healthy life expectancy between communities

These outcomes reflect the focus PHE wish to take, not only on how long we live – our life expectancy, but on how well we live – our healthy life expectancy. PHE’s focus is also on reducing differences between people and communities from different backgrounds.
