NICE has developed public health briefings for a range of different topics. These briefings are meant for local authorities and their partner organisations in the health and voluntary sectors, in particular those involved with health and wellbeing boards. This briefing summarises NICE's recommendations for local authorities and partner organisations on preventing people becoming overweight and obese and helping them to manage their weight.

The Public Health Outcomes Framework Healthy lives, healthy people: Improving outcomes and supporting transparency sets out a vision for public health, desired outcomes and the indicators that will help us understand how well public health is being improved and protected. The framework concentrates on two high-level outcomes to be achieved across the public health system, and groups further indicators into four ‘domains’ that cover the full spectrum of public health. The outcomes reflect a focus not only on how long people live, but on how well they live at all stages of life. This profile currently presents data for the first set of indicators at England and upper tier local authority levels, collated by the public health observatories in England. The profile allows you to:

  • Compare your local authority against other authorities in the region
  • Benchmark your local authority against the England average

Public Health Outcomes Framework baseline data will be revised and corrected in accordance with the general DH statistical policy on revisions and corrections. This profile should be a must read for all those involved in the commissioning and management of services associated with public health and health inequalities.

Bolton's Healthy Weight Strategy 2012-2017 focuses on three priority areas; tackling the obesogenic environment, the early years and provision of appropriate weight management services. The rationale is that if we can establish healthy eating and physical activity patterns from the start, where the place we live makes the healthy choice, the easy choice, and those identified as overweight or obese are supported to address their weight problems, we will be able to tackle obesity. Some high level impacts include tackling takeaways and the ‘fast food’ culture, making breastfeeding the norm and addressing weight within the context of the family.
