About public health

Public health is concerned with the health of all North Lincolnshire’s residents. Public health helps people stay healthy, live happy lives and prevents illness. Broadly there are three areas relating to public health, which are:

  • Health Improvement – which contributes to increased life expectancy, healthier ways to live our lives and reducing health disparities
  • Heath Protection – which includes protection from infectious diseases and environmental hazards
  • Health services – which includes the planning for quality and accessible health and social care services.
