The workshop report identified a number of issues that needed to be addressed to achieve a public health system that was ‘fit for purpose’ in this region: • The overall public health system needs to be mapped and described: which organisations are part of it, and what each is required to contribute to improve and protect health. • An organisation’s contribution to public health should not be optional and it should be held accountable for its delivery. • Organisational boundaries can be an obstacle to delivery – all relevant organisations should have a duty of partnership and should recognise the public health system will become network driven, with people contributing from all levels; the workforce must be liberated from its ‘silos’ to enable cross-skilling and provide public health input where the people who need it are located.

For example: NGO: They [the NHS] are only small, part players in the total picture so, in my view, far more important than the NHS is getting local government on side because it’s local government that will make or break the building blocks. Local government: I view the public health workforce as not just the NHS-employed workforce, but I think that that is not necessarily a common view of the world. I view the departments I’m in charge of to be a huge part of the public health workforce and capacity in this city, and I think it’s one that isn’t always, as it should be, recognised as such.

Such an approach will entail confronting vested interests in the food and drinks industry in much the same way as governments have had to confront the tobacco industry over the impact of smoking on health (Freudenberg and Galea, 2007). Although obesity is presented as an example of a particularly complex public health issue, the Foresight report notes that obesity is not unique, having much in common with a number of other challenges to the health of the public as well as to public health practitioners.
