The 2010 Regional Health Profiles are now available. They highlight the considerable variation in health between local authority areas and help to identify priorities for health improvement. The profiles show the data included in the 2010 local authority profiles in a new presentation, and also include trend charts and maps highlighting important issues for the area.
Health Profiles give a snapshot overview of health for each local authority and region in England. They are designed to help local government and health services make decisions and plans to improve local people’s health and reduce health inequalities. The profiles present a set of key health indicators that show how the area compares to the national and regional average.
