Why it is still good to talk...

By Andrew McCoig, chief executive officer of Merton, Sutton & Wandsworth and Croydon LPCs. Public health commissioning is becoming a farce, with all the professional expertise out there in danger of being replaced... by an app. Back in 2015, George Osborne (the then Chancellor of the Exchequer) announced that while he was protecting the “NHS spend” on health, he would not extend that protection to the public health budgets of local authorities. Consequently, he determined that £200m would be removed from those budget allocations across England and Wales. This equates to an average sum of £1.15m per local authority. Faced with such a draconian and peremptory financial blow, public health departments have had to drastically rethink how they spend their shrinking pots of money.
