Abstract: Recently, responsibility for public health commissioning in England was placed within local authorities and councillors in local authorities are now seen as key figures; ‘‘tak[ing] on leadership for public health at the local level’’ (Dept. of Health, 2012:6–7). It is critical that councillors, in their new leadership roles within public health, are consulted to establish their local health priorities. This study aimed to engage with councillors to identify health priorities, relating to the needs of local populations. This research reveals councillors perspectives on the health care needs of their local populations.
