A single point of access to data and analysis tools from across Public Health England: Cancer Child and maternal health Comparison, practice and performance Drugs, alcohol and tobacco End of life care General health profiles Health impact assessment Health inequalities Injuries and violence Learning disabilities Long term conditions Mental health Obesity, diet and physical activity Screening Sexual health Social care, adults and older people

11 Public Health Outcomes Framework
From Healthy lives, healthy people: Improving outcomes and supporting transparency (2012) came the Public Health Outcomes Framework which set 2 main outcomes: To improve and protect the nation’s health and wellbeing and improve the health of the poorest, fastest Outcome 1) Increased healthy life expectancy – taking into account health quality as well as length of life Outcome 2) Reduced differences in life expectancy between communities (through greater improvements in more disadvantaged communities)
