Our role-specific priorities
• Monitor implementation of the Public Health Outcomes Framework
(PHOF)
• Data to allow production of metrics and tools to identify variation. PHOF tool to
enable commissioners and stakeholders to monitor, plan and act
• An informatics solution for Health Checks
• Responsibility for the Health Checks programme moved from primary care trusts
to local authorities. PHE needs an informatics solution for Health Checks
based on data extraction form primary care.

• To support the data required to monitor delivery of child health services and to
deliver consistency in functionality of information systems in order to promote
better, safer and more effective care for children

Our role-specific priorities
• Provision of linked local data to CCGS and Local Authorities
• Key local data from public health and healthcare is required at local level. Data is
required from individual sources, but more importantly from linked sources via a
linkage service, provided within an appropriate IG framework
• Communicable Disease Surveillance
• Manage and deliver robust surveillance services, including key near real-time data
feeds (e.g. to highlight outbreaks) to support an integrated public health surveillance
system.
• NCD Surveillance - Disease Registration, Drug Treatment Monitoring
• PHE will manage a disease registration service which will generate quality assured
data on key disease areas, including cancer and congenital abnormalities. Includes
detailed information on therapies including chemotherapy drugs. PHE will continue
to manage the drug treatment monitoring service.

Our role-specific priorities
• A more coordinated approach to surveys
• PHE requires information from surveys to plan and monitor progress in
improving healthy lifestyles. We utilise many existing surveys from NHSE along
with a number of other different surveys and need to ensure that there is a
coordinated and consistent approach
• System-wide pseudonymisation
• To align with the Caldicott Report and also help address some of the basic data
linkage requirements of Local Authorities and CCGs/CSUs that underlie the
more problematic demands for patient identifiable data

Identify, plan, but most of all, deliver….
• As public sector organisations, IP, technology,
methodologies and data should be freely shared
between organisations (although value added services
may come at cost).
• Collaboration is critical, but this depends on absolute
clarity on roles, purpose and contribution
• We need a strong, collective, common overall framework
by which we identify, prioritise, commission, deliver and
hold to account
