Health Matters
We've published the third edition of Health Matters and this latest issue looks at harmful drinking and alcohol dependence. Health Matters is a resource for public health professionals, which brings together important facts, figures and evidence of effective interventions to tackle major public health problems. PHE's Professor Kevin Fenton explains the latest edition in this video:

New Health Matters content includes a harmful drinking toolkit blog, outlining resources and information available to help support professionals in making an impact locally. You can also download a suite of infographics for use in your social media and presentations. For updates, sign up to our e-bulletin and please do take a look at the new slides on our Slide Share.

e-Bug is a project which educates children & young people about microbes. The free health education resources include videos, animations, patient stories and help with revision and coursework.

Hypertension regional profiles
This week we launched a series of hypertension profiles for each clinical commissioning group and lower tier local authority. The  profiles show each local authority how well it is doing in detecting and treating high blood pressure by comparing its performance with that of similar authorities and with the rest of England. You can read a new blog for more information on how these can be used.

Food procurement and the environment
The latest blog from our 'Health in a Changing climate' series discuses how food procurement and sustainable catering have an impact on our environment.
