Drawing on in-depth case studies across England, this book argues that governance and population health are inextricably linked. Using original research, it shows how these links can be illustrated at a local level through commissioning practice related to health and wellbeing. Exploring the impact of governance on decision- making, Governance, commissioning and public health analyses how principles, such as social justice, and governance arrangements, including standards and targets, influence local strategies and priorities for public health investment. In developing ‘public health governance’ as a critical concept, the study demonstrates the complexity of the governance landscape for public health and the leadership qualities required to negotiate it. This book is essential reading for students, academics, practitioners and policy-makers with an interest in governance and decision-making for public health.

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 contains 12 parts and 23 schedules addressing a range of issues relating to health and social care. The Act gives effect to the policies set out in the white paper 'Equity and excellence: liberating the NHS' (2010, Cm. 7881, ISBN 9780101788120).

In addition, the Act will underpin the creation of Public Health England, and take forward measures to reform public health bodies. Parts are: The health service in England; Further provision about public health; regulation of health and adult social care services; NHS foundation trusts and NHS trusts; Public involvement and local government; Primary care services; Regulation of health and social care workers; the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE); Health and adult social services: information; Abolition of certain public bodies; Miscellaneous; Final provisions.

At a time when there are major changes in commissioning arrangements, this book provides a carefully structured and comprehensive look at the resources designed to improve population health and wellbeing outcomes.
