Factsheet PHE functions
PHEs organisational design
National Office (incl. hubs and supported by
national centres)
Specialist distributed networks
Factsheet PHEs organisational design
PHEs National Office
  • PHEs national office will act as the service
    centre for the organisation and provide
    leadership, strategic direction and support the
    overall public health system.
  • PHE will build the current systems centres of
    professional, scientific and analytical expertise
    with national centres of expertise and
  • PHE will distribute a small number of national
    office functions across four geographical hubs
    that are coterminous with the NHS Commissioning
    Boards sectors and DCLG resilience hubs.
  • Each hub will
  • ensure PHEs emergency preparedness, resilience
    and response plans are in place
  • quality assure services delivered by Units
  • ensure high-quality advice to the NHS
    Commissioning Board
  • support transparency and accountability across
    the system
  • offer professional support to directors of public

PHEs Units
  • Directors of public health are the local leaders
    for public health
  • Alongside this, PHE will deploy expert and
    specialist capacity at a level that allows it to
    understand and respond to local needs and support
    local leaders.
  • The units main areas of work
  • deliver services and advice to local government,
    the NHS and work in partnership to protect the
    public, involving national centres where
  • make an effective contribution to emergency,
    preparedness, resilience and repose system
  • support effective local action to promote and
    protect health, and wellbeing and tackle
  • PHEs units will develop from the current health
    protection units of the Health Protection Agency.

PHEs Units further design work
Early in 2012 we will seek views of local
authorities and other local partners on how PHE
can best prove its responsiveness and expert
contribution to localities.
  • We will consider how
  • PHE might contribute information and advice to
    the Director of Public Healths independent
  • Directors of Public Health and PHE can work
    together to determine the contribution of PHE to
    health and wellbeing boards.
  • PHE should organise its working relationships
    with NHS clinical commissioning groups, clinical
    senates and providers.
  • The annual work programme for PHE can best be
    informed by
  • locally specific and relevant indicators
  • any cross-local authority priorities that
    have been identified as being delivered more
    effectively in a collaborative way
  • national priorities as expressed in the
    outcomes frameworks
  • national priorities set by Government.

PHEs specialist distributed networks
  • Some of PHEs functions, including its quality
    assurance and information and intelligence
    functions will be repeated and consistent across
    the country, but dependent on strong local
  • Some national functions provided through
    geographically distributed arms of PHE,
    accountable to national office.
  • Others will be replicated across the country.
    Focus on supporting interpretation and use of
    information and intelligence by the local public
    health system.

PHEs status and accountability
  • Status as an executive agency
  • As an executive agency of DH, PHE will have the
    operational autonomy to advise Government, local
    authorities and the NHS in a professionally
    independent manner. PHE will be operationally
  • PHE will demonstrate transparency through
    developing plans openly, publishing expert
    scientific and public health advice, and
    reporting openly on measures set by Government.
  • Accountability
  • Our plan is that PHE chief executive is
    responsible for day-to-day operations of PHE,
    reporting to the DH permanent secretary and
    accountable to the Secretary of State.
  • The Secretary of State is ultimately accountable
    to Parliament for PHEs delivery.
  • We will continue to engage and listen on the
    details of PHEs design.

Accountability and governance structure for
Public Health England
The NHSs role in public health
  • The NHS will continue to play a key role in
    improving and protecting the publics health. The
    provision of health services and ensuring fair
    access to those services will contribute to
    improving health and reducing inequalities.
  • The NHS will also continue to commission specific
    public health services and will seek to maximise
    the impact of the NHS in improving the health of
    the public, making every clinical contact count.
  • PHE will have a close working relationship with
    the NHS Commissioning Board.
  • The NHS Future Forum is currently considering how
    the NHS can contribute to improving the health of
    the public. Its interim findings have been
    published on the DH website.

  • The public health workforce

Public health workforce
The success of the new system depends on the
skills and energies of public health staff
including building relationships to make public
health everyones business.
  • We have a diverse workforce, working for a wide
    range of employers. Through transition, we need
    to ensure all staff are treated fairly and have
    access to exciting opportunities.
  • We are working closely with staff representatives
    and local government to ensure fair and
    transparent process and appropriate terms and
  • We have published an HR Concordat setting out key
    principles. Local Government Group guidance and
    an initial People Transition Policy for PHE to
    follow. The final People Transition Policy will
    follow agreement on terms and conditions.
  • Maintaining a vibrant professional workforce into
    the future will underpin the success of the
    reforms. The workforce strategy will be key to
    this and will be subject to consultation.
