Joint Review – Public Health England and the Association of Directors of Public Health
This joint review of drug & alcohol commissioning by local authorities in England was published on 3rd October 2014 along with a covering letter from PHE Chief Executive Duncan Selbie and ADPH President Dr Janet Atherton.
This followed a snapshot review of commissioning across local authorities in England to identify where there have been changes to commissioning and its impact on outcomes, as well as future plans for commissioning.
In welcoming publication of the report, ADPH President Dr Janet Atherton commended this collaborative approach which will serve as a strong basis for continuing sector-led improvement of substance misuse services and result in improved outcomes for local populations. Janet acknowledged the sterling work undertaken by PHE colleagues and ADPH members in support of the Review, and thanked all those who had contributed to the review process.
