Annual Public Health Report published
 

Croydon’s annual public health report has taken on a new look this year to help make it more informative and reader friendly. The magazine-style format humanises all-important health messages by telling the inspirational stories of Croydon people. They talk about how they have made small lifestyle changes to improve their own health, and to demonstrate to others what can be done.

Your Health, complete with colourful layouts and pictures, covers all aspects of public health in the borough, from breast feeding and obesity to smoking and contraception. Each topic is told through the experiences of Croydon residents, supplemented by easily digestible key facts and advice.

This is the first public health report since the council took over responsibility for these services following the abolition of NHS primary care trusts. The nationwide changes mean elected councillors will oversee public health, bringing greater accountability as it will have the same level of scrutiny as other council functions.

Councillor Margaret Mead, cabinet member for adult services and health, said: “This report is about helping people in Croydon take care of and improve their own health.

“Whether that is giving children a healthy start in life, encouraging adults to exercise, or helping those with long-term conditions, the report covers all aspects of public health.

“We’re also really pleased with the new magazine format of the report, which we hope will appeal and reach out to a wider audience across the borough.”

The report is available at www.croydon.gov.uk/public-health-report
