A new resource brings together health outcomes data for children and young people for the first time. 
The Child and Maternal (ChiMat) Health Intelligence Network has published a first version of the Children and Young People’s Health Outcomes Framework.
This new resource was created in response to the Children and Young People’s Health Outcomes Forum’s recommendation to highlight areas of particular relevance to improving the health outcomes of children and young people.
The website outlines trends for child poverty, teenage pregnancy, and birth weight at a local or primary care trust level, among other indicators. Users will be able to compare areas and download data. 
Professor Ian Lewis, co-chair of the National Children and Young People’s Healthcare Outcomes Forum and Chair of the ChiMat Health Intelligence Network said: "I welcome this single site that brings together all children and young people’s outcome indicators in both the NHS and Public Health Outcomes Frameworks in an easily accessible and meaningful way. It highlights many important areas for improvement but also the need to expand the scope of the currently available indicators in line with the recommendations of the Children and Young People’s Outcomes Forum."
Dr Ann Hoskins, director for Children, Young People and Families, Public Health England said: "The Children and Young People’s Health Outcomes Framework is an important new tool that brings together all the outcomes for children in the NHS and Public Health Outcomes Frameworks. It is an essential new resource to support joined up commissioning of services for children, young people and families at a local level."
The information is available to view on the Public Health England website
