Director of Public Health Annual Report
The role of the Director of Public Health is to be an independent advocate for the health of the people of this county.
Directors of Public Health have a statutory requirement to write an annual report on the health of their population. The Director of Public Health Annual Report is a vehicle for informing local people about the health of their community, as well as providing necessary information for decision makers in local health services and authorities on health gaps and priorities that need to be addressed.
This year the Annual Report from the Director of Public Health focuses on the care people receive at the end of life, and how it can be improved. However, for that to happen will require a fundamental change in the way we all deal with the prospect of life ending. It means people need to feel more able to talk readily about death and dying, particularly with their families and relatives and health and Care professionals.
