Spend and outcomes

Public Health England have produced a spend and outcomes tool (SPOT) that provides an overview of spend and outcomes in local authorities and clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), for public health teams and commissioners. With this tool public health teams and commissioners can:

  • compare against other local authorities or CCGs
  • look at spend against a selection of outcomes across public health interventions and frameworks, including the Public Health Outcomes Framework
  • identify programmes with outcomes that are significantly different to similar local authorities or CCGs, that may need more analysis
  • use the tool alongside return on investment and health economics tools

Data and reports

We are currently working on a summary of the programmes in Kent that are identified by the tool as having outcomes that may need more analysis.

Library services

The Public Health and Social Care Library can provide access to library and knowledge services, including books and journal articles relating to spend and outcomes. We can also produce bespoke literature searches.


If you can't find what you were looking for, we complete over 200 ad-hoc requests for analysis each year. Request further analysis or a literature search or contact us.
