The government plans to shake up the provision of public health as part of wider reforms to the NHS, by moving public health teams into local authorities and setting up a new central body, Public Health England. What will this mean for GP commissioners, who will also be looking to promote good health in their communities?

Dr Sam Everington, GP at Bromley by Bow Centre in Tower Hamlets, spoke at the first in a series of GP commissioning seminars about his experience of embedding public health in primary care and beyond.  He spoke to Senior Fellow Ruth Thorlby about the opportunities and challenges for both GPs and public health professionals arising from the proposed reforms.
