Local health profiles

Page Contents


Public Health England’s annual Health Profiles give a snapshot of the overall health of each Local Authority in England. The profiles present an overview of some of the most important health indicators monitored by Public Health, including comparisons to national averages to highlight areas of interest for improvement for Local Authorities. These profiles are produced for use by elected Councillors, Directors of Public Health and Health and Wellbeing Boards as well as 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.

Outcomes data are presented at district level across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to help local authorities and health services to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people and to tackle health inequalities. Indicators are drawn from the nationally produced Child Health Profiles and the locally developed Children’s Outcome Framework.
