Corporate governance

The London Health Observatory is now part of Public Health England, an executive agency of the Department of Health. The LHO has joined the Knowledge and Intelligence Team (London). This is a legacy page containing corporate content about the London Health Observatory prior to 1 April 2013. For current information about PHE and work of the Knowledge and Intelligence Teams please see

LHO Board

The London Health Observatory was not a public authority in its own right. Formerly hosted by NHS London, the LHO joined Commissioning Support for London (CSL) in April 2009. When CSL closed the LHO was hosted by its successor organisation, London Health Programmes – itself hosted by NHS North Central London.

As a public health observatory the LHO was ultimately accountable to the Chief Medical Officer for its nationally commissioned work. This work was overseen by the LHO Board. The LHO Board was independent and its membership drawn from key partner organisations in London. The main role of the LHO Board was to provide guidance and strategic direction in the development and delivery of this programme of work.

The work of the public health observatories as a whole was overseen by a steering group, set up by the Department of Health as the sponsor for the Association of Public Health Observatories (APHO). The APHO steering group was chaired by David Harper on behalf of the Chief Medical Officer and met twice a year until its closure in March 2010.
