The reports are reviewed and discussed at the Health and Wellbeing Board.

Public Health Outcome Framework

The Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) Healthy lives, healthy people: Improving outcomes and supporting transparency sets out a vision for public health, desired outcomes and the indicators that will help us understand how well public health is being improved and protected.

The framework concentrates on two high-level outcomes to be achieved across the public health system, and groups further indicators into four ‘domains’ that cover the full spectrum of public health. The outcomes reflect a focus not only on how long people live, but on how well they live at all stages of life.

The latest updates for the PHOF indicators for Northamptonshire are available under the Health Service Outcomes and current PHOF category on Northamptonshire Analysis, and also via Public Health Profiles:
