A snapshot of children and young people’s health by clinical commissioning group (CCG) in England has been provided by Public Health England.

This presents data across 32 key health indicators of child health and wellbeing, such as obesity, breastfeeding rates, A&E admissions, and hospital attendances for mental health issues.

The aim of the data is to help CCGs, councils and local organisations work in partnership to improve health in their local area.

There is also a four-page profile for each local authority in England that includes a summary, as well as maps and charts showing the difference in health between the area and the England average.

Professor Kevin Fenton, national director of Health and Wellbeing at PHE, said: “Not only will the profiles help set local healthcare priorities, but commissioners can reach out to high performing local authorities and share best practice.”

“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,” he added.
