Director of public health annual reports

The director of public health annual reports provide a commentary on local health issues based on the latest data. It is part of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, which 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 these reports are to raise awareness and understanding of local health issues, highlight areas of specific concern and make recommendations for change.

The 2016/17 director of public health annual report focuses on children and young people and how we are working to ensure that they have the best start in life so we can future-proof the next generation.
