The Local Authority Health Profiles provide an overview of health for each local authority in England. They pull together existing information in one place and contain data on a range of indicators for local populations, highlighting issues that can affect health in each locality.
The profiles are intended as ‘conversation starters’ to help local government and health services make plans to improve the health of their local population and reduce health inequalities.
