"Health Profiles provide summary health information to support local authority members,
officers and community partners to lead for health improvement"
Health Profiles is a programme to improve availability and accessibility for health and health-related information in England. The profiles give a snapshot overview of health for each local authority in England. Health profiles are produced annually.
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 important health indicators that show how the area compares to the national and regional average.
Finding a profile
You can find the profile you want by the area name using a text search, or select it using a clickable geographical map. The latest profiles available are 2012 Local Authority and County profiles.
Health Profiles are available for Local Authorities and Counties represented by different colours:
- Green Profiles - Local Authorities (County Districts, London Boroughs, Unitary Authorities, Metropolitan County Districts)
- Purple Profiles - Counties
You can access the information via interactive maps for local authorities and regions using the atlases provided in the 'Maps' section of the website. The atlases allow you to create maps and charts and compare local authority areas and indicators.
