Commissioned services

We receive a ring-fenced public health grant from the Department of Health and Social Care. This is to fund services to improve the health of the local population and reduce health inequalities. 

We have direct responsibility for spending the public health grant and invest more than £33 million a year on commissioned services. We're committed to:

  • Achieving best value for money

  • Seeking to continually improve how we commission and deliver our services

  • Improve accessibility

Through the development and delivery of a range of preventative services we aim to promote health and wellbeing for all residents, especially those at high risk of ill health and premature death. 

Services that we commission include the following.

Norfolk Healthy Child Programme (HCP) 

The HCP is a combination of services and partnership approaches to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people. The service includes:
