Abstract

A survey of health authorities in England to establish GPs' health promotion activities found that anti-smoking and heart disease prevention were the most common initiatives. Many HAs were dissatisfied with the current arrangements, feeling that they had little control of GPs' health promotion activities. Two-thirds of HAs reported problems with monitoring GPs' health promotion activities. Few health promotion initiatives addressed mental health, cancer or accident prevention.
