Making obesity everybody’s business: A whole systems approach to obesity

This is a very useful report – and gives some good pointers as to how a ‘whole systems approach’ may work in practice.

The Local Government Association has published a briefing for elected members on the Whole Systems Obesity (WSO) Programme. PHE in partnership with the LGA and the Association of Directors of Public Health commissioned Leeds Beckett University to deliver this three year action research programme, which launched in October 2015. It aims to develop a practical guide to help councils create a Whole Systems Approach (WSA) in their local area, building on learning from current national and international practice.
