East Riding of Yorkshire Public Health has transformed the way health and wellbeing is being improved within the East Riding by maximising customer satisfaction while doing more with less. This powerful, researched and award-winning combination of personalised public health with shrewd financial planning has much to offer other public sector organisations.

Judges’ comments: Great example of culture shift across a whole system through clever, well implemented initiatives, and with an impressive commitment to partnership working.


A word from the award’s sponsor

NICE is the independent organisation responsible for making evidence-based recommendations on activities, policies and strategies that can help prevent disease, reduce health inequalities and improve wellbeing.

We develop guidance on a wide range of health and social care topics relevant to local government, offering effective and cost effective advice. For public health, this includes topics like obesity, physical activity, behaviour change, sexual health, smoking and alcohol.

To improve the health and wellbeing of their communities local authorities can make use of NICE resources and be confident that the solutions they implement are rooted in the evidence of what works best and delivers good value for money.
