Public Health Briefings from NICE

NICE has developed public health briefings for a range of different
topics. These briefings are meant for local authorities and their
partner organisations in the health and voluntary sectors, in particular
those involved with health and wellbeing boards.

Below is a list of briefings we have published so far. We also have a
number of briefings in development which we will finalise and publish
in the months ahead.

These briefings will be relevant to local authority officers and
councillors, directors of public health, and commissioners and directors
of adult social care and children's services. It will also be relevant
to members of local authority scrutiny committees.

The briefings may also be used alongside the local joint strategic
needs assessment to support the development of joint health and
wellbeing strategies.
