Public Health England’s Health Profiles give a snapshot of the overall health of each local authority in England. The profiles present a set of important health indicators that show how each area compares to the national average in order to highlight potential problem areas.  They are produced for use by elected Councillors, Directors of Public Health, Health and Wellbeing Boards and to inform Joint Strategic Needs Assessments.  PHE have recently been working to align the Health Profiles with indicators in the Public Health Outcomes Framework and are now publishing quarterly updates to 'Health Profile' indicators: 

Local briefings

We produce local briefings to accompany PHE's annual Health Profile reports, highlighting the indicators that are statistically significantly worse than the England average at county and district level for Cambridgeshire and for Peterborough Unitary Authority.  The briefings provides local context, a summary of the profiles, and recent trends where possible.  Last update: September 2016.
