What is Public Health?

Public Health looks at the way people in Tameside live as a whole population, the lifestyles they lead, and the diseases and illnesses that affect them. This helps us understand what the main health and wellbeing needs are for people living here, so we can look for ways to improve physical and mental health, prevent illness and protect people from disease and injury.

Tameside Council Public Health team uses extensive research to understand the health of people living in the borough. This work is summed up in our Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA), which is public information, and available for everybody to read. Using this research we commission (buy in) services and influence policies and vision of work to help improve the health of people living in Tameside.
