Solutions for Public Health
Solutions for Public Health (SPH) is a not-for-profit NHS public health organisation. We work with decision makers across the public and third sectors to improve health and reduce health inequalities. We help our clients provide the right services in the right place, for the right population, at the best cost and quality.
We do this by:
- identifying the health needs of their populations
- interpreting the evidence of what works
- evaluating the quality and productivity of their services
- implementing the changes to provide better health and better value health care
Our clients include the Department of Health, the NHS Commissioning Board, clinical commissioning groups, local authorities, mental health and acute trusts and clinical networks.
