Sector Led Improvement

What is sector led improvement?

Sector led improvement is the approach to improvement put in place together with local authorities and the Local Government Association after the abolition of the national performance framework. It aims to provide assurance to both internal and external stakeholders and the public, as well as demonstrate continuous improvement to Public Health Practice.

SLI is based on the underlying principles that councils are:
• Responsible for their own performance and improvement and for leading the delivery of improved outcomes for local people
• Accountable to local communities
• Collectively responsible for the performance of the sector as a whole

The Cumbria and Lancashire Public Health Collaborative’s SLI priorities for 2023/2024 are; Tobacco and Vaping, Hypertension and CVD, Screening, Vaccination and Immunisation, Suicide Prevention

Abdul Razaq (DPH Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council) is the current SLI lead for Cumbria and Lancashire
