What is public health?

Public health works with residents and organisations across Ealing to give you access to the information and support you need to take action to lead a healthy life, and to protect you from threats to your health. To support residents’ health, Ealing Council uses health data to help decide the best health services for the borough.

The council’s public health team focusses on:

  • Improving the overall health of whole communities
  • encouraging all residents to take to control of their health and the health of their families
  • promoting health and wellbeing across the borough
  • providing the information and support needed for Ealing residents to address their specific health issues.

The council also supports the local clinical commissioning group to make sure that local people get high quality and safe clinical services, like GP services.
