Councils will be given an estimated £2.2bn to prepare for the transfer of public health responsibilities from the NHS next year, the government has announced.

The funding, which will be allocated to upper-tier and unitary authorities in April, will help councils get ready for their new role.

Overall, the government is planning to spend £5.2bn on public health from April 2012 to April 2013.

NHS Commissioning Board will receive £2.2bn. Public Health England will receive £210m and the Department of Health will use £620m for health campaigns.

From April 2013-14 the public health budget will be ring-fenced.
