Government Response Health Select Committee’s Report on Public Health England (Department of Health)

Summary

The government has responded to the House of Commons Health Select Committee (HSC) report on Public Health England, published in February 2014. The response addresses concerns about PHE’s independence, policy work and relationship with the government. PHE has to be part of government, but operationally autonomous.

“The Government accepts that sometimes what PHE publishes may be challenging, but there is no subject that is out-of-bounds. The critical point is that whatever PHE says should be soundly based in evidence, transparent about the limits of our knowledge, and focused on areas where PHE can make a unique contribution and add most value”. (p.3)
