Public Health

Suffolk's Public Health team is responsible for helping people stay healthy and protecting them from threats to their health.

What we do

Improving the population's health is as much about improving the opportunities for good health as it is about providing health and care services.

Our priority is to address inequality in Suffolk so that it should not matter who people are or where they live when it comes to their health and opportunities in life. 

In Public Health our goals are:

  • to promote health and healthy lifestyles
  • to protect the health and well-being of our county
  • to prevent ill health
  • to prolong lives
  • to improve health and the factors that affect health, well-being and health inequalities
  • to support our health and care services

The Suffolk Joint Emergency Planning Unit is also part of Public Health.
