Public Health, Environmental Health:-So What? Chris Shaw Director of Health Improvement Sheffield City Council
Learning from History PH in local government was led by medical men for much of 19 th and 20 th centuries People working for them, engineers, inspectors of nuisances, HVs MoH, powerful influences on the work undertaken MoH constrained - what council was willing to pay for and what it believed would be effective Webster - MoHs did not act collectively esp on poverty Up to 1974 responsible for sanitation, prevention, housing, waste, health services for women and children, school health, etc Since 1974, attention dwindled, some arguing why should we do it, it’s the NHS job?
Local Government – The Public Health Service 25% Health Care System 15% Genes 10% Physical Environment 50% Social & Economic Environment An individuals life circumstances contribute more to health improvement than health care services Local government is best placed to change life circumstances and improve health Estimated Health Impact of ‘Determinants Of Health’ on Population Health Status Source: Canadian Institute for a Advanced Research
Double Vision? Faculty of Public Health, CIEH – spot the difference ‘Leading, inspiring and delivering a safer, cleaner and healthier world.’ ‘The world’s population achieves and maintains its fullest potential for health and wellbeing’
Wave Theory Public health has delivered in waves over the decades – from the classic water and sanitation of 1800s, to scientific advances into 1950, the post war welfare developments (including the NHS) and risk factor and lifestyle issues from 1960 to now# This combination of reforms and a change in the health ‘concerns of the generation present a massive opportunity for redefining a relationship which has always existed but changed with progress in other fields #Afternow – Phil Hanlon Glasgow University
What Are You Selling? activityDPH Comments Current regulatoryThat would happen anyway Current CampaignsShow me the evidence of impact Community focussed activityHow is that better than ours? New investmentWhat should I stop doing?
Observations CCG’s have too much to do, you will do well to engage them or GP’s, you have too much to do too. Everyone wants a place on Health and Wellbeing Boards DPH’s are not inclined to change their ‘commissioning’ plans Members will be on your side. PH practitioners do not know as much as you about communities. PH evidence isn’t all its cracked up to be. EH will have to rethink its role and relationships if it is to be involved, Institute can help. Think health concerns – long term conditions, mental health, older people Think Political concerns- Inequality, vulnerable communities, strategic priorities
Ideas Health and safety- local accident data, Lofstedt, different intervention, Food – what are the PH threats? Food strategy, salt, transfats, Combine Protection with Improvement Housing- vulnerable communities, private rented, fuel poverty, Cat 1 hazards Wellbeing + resilience – opportunity?
