Abstract

This paper provides a snapshot of how councils already work to integrate health improvement into mainstream service delivery – from transport, planning and leisure, to housing, environmental health, education and social care. Councils are ready to lead and empower communities, neighbourhoods, families and individuals to deliver a 21st century revolution in public health with an emphasis on the health of the public rather than public health activities.
