The ring fenced grants for 2013-14 and 2014-15 announced today (10 Jan 2013) provide local authorities with £2.66 billion and £2.79 billion to spend on public health services for their local populations. Average growth of 5.5% has been provided in 2013-14 and 5.0% in 2014-15, and a significant number will see growth of 10% in each year, representing a major investment in health and the prevention of illness.
