Making sense of the budget
WORK IS in progress to establish the future size of the ring-fenced public health budget. One part of this will involve continued engagement with the NHS and, increasingly, local government partners, to refine assessments of current baseline spending by the NHS on activity, which in future will be funded from the public health budget. This work and decisions about the portions of the public health budget that would be - distributed to local authorities; transferred to the NHS Commissioning Board to fund commissioning of specific public health programmes; or form the budget of Public Health England itself - are dependent on ongoing work, including on the final agreement of commissioning responsibilities.
The Government said local authorities will be adequately funded for their new responsibilities and that any additional net burdens will be funded in line with the New Burdens Doctrine. Public health grants to upper tier and unitary local authorities will be made for the first time in 2013-14 and the Government intends to provide shadow allocations for 2012-13 by the end of this year.
