The Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH) and Public Health England (PHE) have co-produced a series of ‘What Good Looks Like’ (WGLL) publications that set out the guiding principles of ‘what good quality looks like’ for population health programmes in local systems.
The WGLL publications are based on the evidence of ‘what works and how it works’ including effectiveness, efficiency, equity, examples of best practices, opinions and viewpoints and, where available a return on investment.
Each publication sets out the guiding principles of what good quality looks like for population health programmes in local systems and aims to be a practical resource for leaders and practitioners in the public health system in England.
The publications are not perfect standards, nor are they intended to be compared against as a performance management tool. They are intended as a tool in assist in the sector-led improvement (SLI) process and to support local resource decisions. Some ADPH networks are developing
specific SLI tools from them and we would encourage others to take up that opportunity.
The WGLL publications will be a repository for evidence and a resource for good quality practice from the essential to the transformational which professionals can dip in to when reviewing their own practice, setting up peer challenge or transforming services.
The initial series will include ten publications covering a range of topics across public health. They will be iterative, with regular reviews and updates when new evidence and insights emerge. The intention is to add to the ten WGLL publications with additional topics to create a rich and good quality resource.
Comments on the publications and particularly any ways in which they could be developed or improved are welcome. Please share them with us, or through the PHE Knowledge Hub.
