Refocusing Public Health England

PHE has created a new health improvement directorate which will be led by John Newton, a former chief knowledge officer.

The health improvement directorate will combine a number of existing teams including alcohol, drugs and tobacco, diet and obesity, and health equity and mental health.

The directorate allows PHE to align surveillance, data, evidence and research capability with policy expertise.
