Public Health England publish Child Profiles 2014

The Child Health Profiles 2014, published on 19 March by Public Health England (PHE ), present a picture of child health and wellbeing for each local authority in England using 32 key health indicators which help local organisations work in partnership to improve health in their local area. They contain data on a wide range of issues about and affecting child health, from levels of childhood obesity, MMR immunisation rates, teenage pregnancy and underage drinking, to hospital admissions, educational performance and youth crime. The Local Authority Child Health Profiles 2014 enable local authorities to identify where they are doing well as well as where they might improve in terms of child health, helping them to set priorities locally. PHE are committed to improving child health in the local community and are working on a range of programmes to support local areas to develop a joint strategic needs assessment. This is an annual update and the first time PHE is responsible for publishing these statistics which were previously published by the Department of Health.
