Riches, N., Coleman, A., Gadsby, Erica W., Peckham, Stephen (2015) The Role Of Local Authorities In Health Issues: A Policy Document Analysis. PRUComm, 49 pp. (KAR id:47651)


Prior to the passing of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 the Communities and Local Government (CLG) Select Committee conducted an investigation into the proposed changes to the Public Health System in England. The Committee considered 40 written submissions and heard oral evidence from 26 expert witnesses. Their report, which included complete transcripts of both oral and written submissions, provided a rich and informed data on which to base an analysis of the proposed new public health system. This report analyses the main themes that emerged from the evidence submissions and forms part of our preliminary work for PRUComm’s PHOENIX project examining the development of the new public health system.
