Public health commissioning

Our vision for public health is to protect and improve the health and wellbeing of residents in Herefordshire and reduce health inequalities.

We will do this by:

  • Keeping children and young people safe and giving them a great start in life
  • Enabling residents to live safe, healthy and independent lives
  • Maintaining service provision to those with need within the available resource

Services we are commissioning

The council commissions services including:

  • Drugs and alcohol (recovery focused, peer led, family orientated drug and alcohol treatment service)
  • Sexual health (STI testing and treatment and contraception)
  • Health checks (improved access in terms of time and place with a more flexible appointment system)
  • Stop smoking (improved access, performance and options for treatment by making use of underpinning technology)
