In North Tyneside there’s a lot we can do as individuals to stay healthy and well, but the council also has a role to play.

Our public health team is made up of professionals, led by the Director of Public Health, whose role it is to improve and protect the health of local residents. They focus on preventing ill health and early deaths, as well as protecting people's health in major emergencies.

The team works closely with other colleagues in the Council and key partners across the Borough - NHS, businesses, pharmacies, hospitals, schools, the community and voluntary sector and local people to make sure that health is made a priority in every area of life, and that everyone has access to the support and services they need to be healthy.

Please note that Public Health do not directly provide any of the services listed. Please see the individual service areas and follow the links and contact details provided.
