Public Health England to be replaced by a new agency

The UK government has announced that Public Health England (PHE) is to be replaced by a new agency called the National Institute for Health Protection. Since PHE took over the remit of England’s National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse, it has coordinated evidence reviews related to addiction and has overseen addiction treatment service procurement and commissioning.
