Bristol City Council Public Health Commissioning Intentions 2019 to 2021

Closes 2 May 2019

Opened 21 Mar 2019


Bristol City Council is responsible for the funding and management of Public Health in Bristol. The Public Health funding given to local authorities by central government has reduced by an estimated £700m in recent years. Bristol Public Health has reduced its spending by 17.5% since 2015. Bristol City Council needs to make an additional £2m in savings over the next two years because of reduced funding from central government.

This consultation sets out proposals to make these savings through a combination of decommissioning and changing services. The services affected will be:

  • Alcohol Brief Advice
  • Children’s Weight Management Services
  • Adults’ Weight Management Services
  • NHS Health Checks Service
  • Stop Smoking Services
  • Substance Misuse Services (Shared Care)
  • Sexual Health Services, including Chlamydia Screening

This consultation invites feedback on the proposed changes to these services.

If you would like this information in another format (paper, Braille, audio tape, large print, easy English, BSL video or CD rom, plain text or another language) please contact us by emailing or calling 0117 9222921

This consultation will close on 2 May 2019.
