Health and Wellbeing Committee

Asked what the Health and Wellbeing Committee would do that wasn’t already done by other health committees and wasn’t the term "wellbeing" a David Cameron copyright, the PMS said that he would not want to respond to the second part of the question. The preventative health agenda was something the Prime Minister took very seriously and the fact that a new committee had been created was a reflection of that. This was an issue where we needed a cross-Government response as it affected a wide range of Departments and this was why the new committee had been created. The PMS added that we had already seen the announcement of the National Screening Programme and there would be further announcements on obesity coming up in the next couple of weeks. Asked if the committee would concentrate on public health, the PMS replied that it would focus on public and preventative health.
