The 2018 Local Authority Health Profile pdfs have been released. It is a requirement for accredited HLPs to have up-to-date- knowledge of local health needs and priorities and this tool is one of the best ways to achieve that alongside the local Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA).
Understanding local needs will allow HLPs to focus their health promotion zone, health campaigns and health and wellbeing services to support the needs of their local communities and local commissioners. To support you in this we have developed our Championing Health Cards.
Use the ‘Find your Health Profile’ search facility on the Local Authority Health Profiles online tool to download the pdf report for a specific Local Authority.
