Refocusing Public Health England

PHE has created a new Health Improvement directorate which will be led by John Newton (previous Chief Knowledge Officer).

The Health Improvement directorate will be made up of the following teams:

• Alcohol, Drugs and Tobacco
• Diet and Obesity
• Health Equity and Mental Health
• Healthy People
• Screening and Quality Assurance
• Knowledge and Intelligence
• National Disease Registration
• Research, Translation and Innovation

Creating a Health Improvement directorate allows PHE to closer align surveillance, data, evidence and research capability with policy expertise
