PHE Health Profiles 2017

Public Health England’s Health Profiles give a snapshot of the overall health of each local authority in England. The profiles present a small set of some of the most 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.

PDF reports of the profiles are released annually with quarterly updates to the data published online.  Many of the indicators are now shared with the Public Health Outcomes Framework.

The Local Health website, developed as part of the Health Profiles programme, provides access to maps and data at small area level and has also been recently updated.
