A resource for local health and wellbing boards and the wider community sector has been published by the Department of Health in Partnership with Public Health England and NHS England. Living Well For Longer: National Support for Local Action to Reduce Premature Avoidable Mortality, sets out the NHS's response to the Health Secretary's 'Call to Action' published in 2013. The document is designed as a resource document so that the reader can dip in and out of the document to get an idea of what national policy actions or support there is for delivering local priorities, as well as ideas of good practice and resources that might help local commissioning and service delivery. Users are expected to use this document as a reference tool, to help them understand how the whole national system can support local action to help people live well for longer.
Further information on Living Longer along with conversations about actions and an opportunity to sign up for e-alerts on Living Longer is available through http://livinglonger.dh.gov.uk/
