“Health data are essential for monitoring the health of the population and for evaluating the effects of health interventions. Yet the information collected nationally is often poor and there is no regular mechanism by which a PCT or LA can gather reliable information on its own population” Wanless, 2004. Local Authority Health Profiles are designed to show the health of people in local authorities across England – separate profiles are available for each Local Authority across England. OCSI developed and hosted the website and search facilities for the Community Health Profiles. For further details and to download the profiles see
