This chapter summarises the major themes of the book. There is a need to deliver public health differently in order to address health inequalities and to improve population health and wellbeing in a sustainable way. Engaging with lay people and communities has to be central to the redesign of health services and form part of a fresh approach to public health. The chapter links core arguments for citizen involvement with concepts such as environmental sustainability, health assets and co-production. It ends with a radical vision of a professional culture based on strong and equal relationships with communities and sets out the authors’ manifesto for a ‘citizen centred public health system’.

Keywords:   wellbeing, assets, sustainability, culture, health system, vision, citizen involvement
