Health Matters: Local authorities’ contributions to PHE’s whole systems approach to obesity guide


I think there are several ways in which
authorities have contributed to the guide and into the resources, the first of all of course is those four pilot sites that went before anybody else, they did a huge
amount of work and there was a District a County, a London Borough, a Unitary and
they did some great work and then after the learning that they brought out of it,
came a second round of authorities testing it, and we were one of them, and
so we contributed back in, this works this doesn’t, don’t understand this, what
do you mean by that, we could do with the guide better, and we spent a lot of
time inputting collectively into the guide and then there was a whole
learning community of local authorities that came together for two or three layers and
they contributed by trying the stuff out, sense checking it in fact I can remember
Paul Gately from Leeds Beckett standing in front of an audience of 100 people,
working them through bits of the toolkit and seeing what works what doesn’t, so I
think local authorities have been through this in and in this all along since
the beginning. you
