How the public is shaping the programme

Millions of people from across the UK are joining Our Future Health, to help everyone live longer and healthier lives. Consequently, we believe it is crucial that we include the views of the public in every step our programme takes.

Members of the public are represented at multiple levels within our programme, from our governance to regular focus groups.  

At every level, we’re committed to ensuring that the voices of people from a wide range of backgrounds are represented. This includes:  

  • Minority ethnic groups  
  • UK regions & devolved nations  
  • People with low incomes/resources  

You can read about the work done by our Public Advisory Board, to see an example of how the public is helping to shape Our Future Health.
