The 2015 Local Health Profiles and Child Health Profiles, produced by Public Health England, have recently been published.

2015 Local Health Profiles

These profiles draw together information to present a picture of health in each local area (down to ward level) in a user-friendly format. They are a valuable tool helping local government and health services to understand their communities' needs, so that they can work to improve people's health and reduce health inequalities. The profiles present a set of health indicators that show how the area compares to the national average. The indicators are carefully selected each year to reflect important public health topics.

2015 Child Health Profiles

Child Health Profiles provide a snapshot of child health and wellbeing for each local authority in England using key health indicators that enable comparison locally, regionally and nationally. By using the profiles local organisations can work in partnership to plan and commission evidence-based services based on local need. The profiles allow you to compare the outcomes in your local population with others in order to identify and learn from better performing areas.
