The 2016 Health Profiles have been published.
The Health Profiles provide a snapshot of health and wellbeing for each local authority in England using a range of charts and text. They pull together existing information in one place and contain data on a range of indicators for local populations.
Health Profiles are intended as ‘conversation starters’ to highlight local issues and priorities for members, and for discussion at Health and Wellbeing Boards.
There have been a number of changes to indicator definitions, as well as removal and replacement of some indicators for the 2016 Health Profiles.
These indicator changes follow the PHOF refresh in May 2016 and a recent consultation with users of the Health Profiles.
See Health Profiles: August 2016 data update for a document explaining the reasons for the indicator changes.
