This chapter is structured around a series of issues that have currently come to the fore in the public health system, all of which have their roots in the history of public health charted in the preceding chapters. These issues represent the key policy and practice challenges facing the public health system as it moves through the twenty-first century. The discussion focuses on the following issues: the nature of policy formation relating to the health of the public; markets, competition and choice; commissioning for health and wellbeing; public health through partnership; and public involvement.
