The responsibility for public health in Cambridgeshire transferred from the local NHS based Primary Care Trust (PCT) to the council on 1 April 2013. The Public Health service is concerned with understanding the health, wellbeing and care needs of our local communities and ensuring that 'health inequalities' are tackled by improving the health of the poorest members of our community. Primary public health aims are to ensure action is taken to:

  • protect the health of the public
  • prevent ill-health
  • promote healthy lifestyles
  • provide advice on commissioning of health and care services to meet population needs
