Cheshire & Merseyside develop new Public Health Collaborative Service
The Cheshire & Merseyside Directors of Public Health are developing an exciting and innovative public health collaborative service that will support local authorities to improve health outcomes for their communities and benefit from economies of scale. The service, designed in co-production with key stakeholders through detailed research and consultation events, will launch in April 2013 with all nine local authority Chief Executives agreeing their support and investment for a period of 2 years.
The aim of the collaborative service is to offer cost and quality benefits to each local authority in Cheshire & Merseyside and the populations they serve through the systematic aggregation of specified public health functions, where it makes sense to do so. It also gives greater access to public health expertise and advice than would be affordable or available for a single local authority enabling Directors of Public Health to make the most of their resources.
