New data outlining the state of UK children’s health was published today and will enable local authorities to learn how they are doing in this critical area.

The Child Health Profiles 2016 presents data across 32 key health indicators of child health and wellbeing, and provide a snapshot of young people’s health by local authority and CCG in England.

There is a four page profile for each local authority in England which includes a summary description of child health in the area which highlights key findings, and maps and charts showing how the health of the area compares other local authorities.

It also includes a ‘spine chart’ health summary showing the difference in health between the area and the England average for 32 indicators within the 5 domains of the Public Health Outcomes Framework.

Issued by Public Health England (PHE), the profiles can also be combined with the Child and Maternal (ChiMat) Health Intelligence Network’s website which provides further information.

Professor Kevin Fenton, national director of Health and Wellbeing at PHE, said: ‘The Child Health Profiles are a valuable tool for local government and health services to help them better understand the specific issues in their communities – ensuring they provide the services needed to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people, as well as reducing the gap in health between poor and wealthier areas.

‘Not only will the profiles help set local healthcare priorities, but commissioners can reach out to high performing local authorities and share best practice.’
