Public Health England was established in April 2013, and took on responsibilities for protecting and improving the nation’s health, and to address inequalities. Part of the role of Public Health England is to provide an integrated approach to protecting UK public health through the provision of support and advice to the NHS, local authorities, emergency services, other Arms Length Bodies, the Department of Health and the Devolved Administrations. Public Health England has also become responsible for information and intelligence available to public health.
NICE is an independent organisation responsible for providing national guidance that supports healthcare professionals and others to make sure that the care they provide is of the best possible quality and offers the best value for money.
