Children’s public health commissioning responsibilities for 0-5 year olds will transfer from NHS England to local authorities on 1 October 2015. Local authorities are well placed to identify health needs and commission services for local people to improve health, and this transfer will join up that already done by local authorities for children and young people aged 5–19.
The Children’s Health and Wellbeing Partnership (CHWP) has established the 0-5 Public Health Commissioning Transfer Programme Board to coordinate and have oversight of the transition.
This paper sets out the scope of 0-5 children’s public health commissioning in greater detail, providing background information and further detail that capture existing commissioned services, where they belong currently and where their future destinations are planned.
