Public Health

Public Health is about promoting and protecting health and wellbeing, preventing ill health and prolonging life through the organised efforts of society.

There are things we can do as individuals to stay well, but the council also has a role to play. We work with key partners across Halton to ensure everyone has access to the support and services they need to be healthy
