PHE launches new data and knowledge information portal

The PHE Data and knowledge gateway gives direct access to analysis tools and resources for public health professionals from one single portal.

Data gateway

Over 100 tools are available through the gateway. They cover a wide range of public health areas, including:

  • specific health conditions – such as cancer, mental health, cardiovascular disease
  • lifestyle risk factors – such as smoking, alcohol, obesity
  • wider determinants of health – such as environment, housing and deprivation
  • health protection, and differences between population groups, including adults, older people and children

The tools serve a range of public health information needs, including the commissioning and planning of services, joint strategic needs assessment, health surveillance, understanding inequalities and variation, research and evidence.
