Drawing on in-depth case studies from across England, this book mounts a powerful argument that governance and the health of a population are inextricably linked. Linda Marks deploys original research to show how these links can be illustrated at a local level through commissioning practice related to health and well-being, analyzing how principles, such as a commitment to social justice, and governance arrangements, including standards and targets, influence local strategies for public health investment—and thus affect outcomes.
David Evans, University of the West of England

"This book is an excellent guide to understanding the complexities and interconnections of governance, commissioning and public health in the context of recent public health policy in the English NHS and local government."
