Director of Public Health annual report 2017/18

The Health and Social Care Act 2012, sets out a requirement for all Directors of Public Health to produce an annual independent report on the health of their local population and for their local authority to publish it.

The purpose of the report is to raise awareness and understanding of local health issues, highlight areas of specific concern and make recommendations for change.

The description of the services in the Director of Public Health Report 2017- 18 was accurate in July 2017, at the time of writing.  There have been changes to some services since that date.
