Newham Health Profiles
Health Profiles provide a snapshot overview of health for each local authority in England. They highlight issues that can affect health in each locality.
Health Profiles aim to:
- provide a consistent, concise, comparable and balanced overview of the population’s health
- inform local needs assessment, policy, planning, performance management, surveillance and practice
- be primarily of use to joint efforts between local government and the health service to improve health and reduce health inequalities
- empower the wider community
These reports have been produced annually since 2006 – all previous versions are available to download from this website.
Child Health Profile
These indicators are designed to help local authorities and health services improve the health and wellbeing of children and tackle health inequalities. Available for each upper-tier local authority and for each Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in England.
By using these indicators local organisations can work in partnership to plan and commission evidence-based services based on local need. The profiles allow comparison between the outcomes in local populations with others in order to identify and learn from better performing areas.
Detailed information (metadata) about the data used in Child Health Profiles is presented in the Indicator Guide. Use this document to find out how each indicator was created, where the data comes from, and what the public health and policy rationale is.
