Public health guidance audit: some improvement but wide variation and progressis slow

Media release from the Health and Work Development Unit

73% of NHS trusts in England took part in the second round audit of Implementing NICE public health guidance for the workplace: a national organisational audit of NHS trusts in England. The audit measured how NHS trusts are progressing with implementation of NICE guidance for key public health topics – obesity, smoking cessation, physical activity, long-term sickness absence, and promoting mental wellbeing.

The round two audit results show that there is acknowledgement of the importance of staff health and wellbeing in the NHS; but the results also show that there is wide variation and progress is slow.
