Developed in partnership by the Department of Health and RSPH and launched in 2014, the Public Health Minister’s Award recognises and rewards excellence and innovation in public health programmes delivered by organisations across all sectors and in settings such as workplaces, schools, care homes, hospitals and the community.

Winners are selected from the category winners of the corresponding year's Health & Wellbeing Awards.

The Health & Wellbeing Awards 2017 has now closed for entries and this year's finalists have now been announced.
