Local Authority

PHE Health Profiles 2017

Public Health England’s Health Profiles give a snapshot of the overall health of each local authority in England.

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.

Spend and Outcomes Tool (SPOT)

Public Health England have developed a Spend and Outcome Tool (SPOT) to give organisations in England an overview of spend and outcomes across key areas of business.  SPOTs are released for both Clinical Commissioning Groups and Local Authorities.

SPOT allows the assessment of levels of investment and associated clinical outcomes in comparison to regional and national benchmarks across several programme budget areas.

Summaries of the SPOT for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Local Authorities have been published by PHE:

 PHE SPOT Summary – Cambridgeshire (418.46 KB)

 PHE SPOT Summary – Peterborough (504.95 KB)

For access to all of the SPOT resources published by Public Health England, see: http://www.yhpho.org.uk/default.aspx?RID=49488

ONS Cluster Dataset

Our ONS cluster dataset from 2012 presented a range of health-related indicators benchmarked against Cambridgeshire’s comparator local authorities.

Our Cambridgeshire districts ONS cluster dataset 2012 (452.55 KB) benchmarks health outcome and health determinant data for Cambridgeshire’s local authority districts against national and Office for National Statistics (ONS) cluster averages.  ONS clusters are groups of local authorities that are socioeconomically and demographically similar and hence can represent a more valid comparator group for each district than using the national average.

ONS are currently updating their clusters of local authorities following the 2011 Census – for more information, see http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/guide-method/geography/products/area-classifications/ns-area-classifications/index.html
