The Public Health Outcomes Framework Healthy Lives, healthy people: Improving outcomes and supporting transparency sets out a vision for public health, desired outcomes and the indicators that will help us understand how well public health is being improved and protected.
The framework concentrates on two high-level outcomes (increased healthy life expectancy and reduced inequality in life expectancy between communities) to be achieved across the public health system, and groups further indicators into four ‘domains’ that cover the full spectrum of public health. The outcomes reflect a focus not only on how long people live, but on how well they live at all stages of life.
The PHOF is updated quarterly (August, November, February and May). Exact dates will be announced on the www.gov.uk statistical release calendar and on www.phoutcomes.info (Public Health England, 2015. PHOF website).
