What is the public health grant?

The purpose of the grant is to provide local authorities in England with the funding required to discharge public health functions. From 2018-19 the grant received by local authorities from the Government has reduced.  As with other public health services commissioned by Public Health Devon, spend on the 0-19 Public Health Nursing Service needs to reduce in 2018-19 to enable the reductions in the public health grant to be managed.

Public Health Devon has a budget of £10million per annum for the Public Health Nursing Service from April 2019.
