Public health service specifications

Service specifications for public health services are available to use as from 1 July 2016.

The suite of public health services specifications are being updated and replaced. These new public health service specifications will be published on this page as they are finalised and will include the new RM set of purchase units. The old public health specifications will be retired once the new set is complete.

Where the Tier 3 specifications are not yet available on this page, guidance for the subject area can be derived from the ‘Service Components’ section of the Tier 2 specification. Where more information is required, content can be referenced from the closest corresponding retired Tier 2 issues-based specification. 

You can find the old specifications at Public health service specifications to be retired.

For more information on the changes, go to the Questions and answers.
