Health protection content now on GOV.UK

Professor John Newton, Chief Knowledge Officer at PHE, said: "For the first time, the way the information is presented is designed explicitly around what users need. This is a big step forward in PHE’s work to go digital first."

PHE has moved health protection content from the Health Protection Agency (HPA) website and PHE’s health protection committees to GOV.UK. GOV.UK makes it simpler, clearer and faster to find this information.

Information is now on GOV.UK about:

  • most-viewed health hazards including infectious diseases, chemicals and poisons and radiation
  • health protection services
  • emergency response

Professor John Newton, Chief Knowledge Officer at PHE, said:

“PHE provides a wealth of health protection resources that are used worldwide. These have now been revised and made more easily available in a single place. For the first time, the way the information is presented is designed explicitly around what users need. This is a big step forward inPHE’s work to go digital first.”

PHE will transition the rest of its content to GOV.UK and NHS Choices by 2016. Health information for the public will be presented as part of NHS Choices. This is part of our commitment to go ‘digital first’ in the PHE Business Plan 2014 to 2015.
