National Health Protection Profiles


The Health Protection Profile covers a range of health protection issues from environmental hazards to infections that are preventable by vaccination. They have been created first and foremost with the public in mind, so that people can find out more about the areas that they live and work in. The information can help inform choices regarding health and lifestyle and improve awareness of local health protection risks.
 
The data is grouped into three domains: Childhood Immunisation, Infectious Diseases and Other. All these domains are displayed together under the heading “All Indicators”.
 
Some indicators are displayed for both upper tier local authorities (counties and unitary authorities) and lower tier local authorities (districts and unitary authorities). It is important to note that indicators may have different ranges according to whether they are displayed for upper or lower tier local authorities. Some indicators cannot be shown for individual local authorities, because either the data is unavailable, or the number of measured events is too low. This can occasionally affect the calculation of the England range, and prevent an indicator being shown.
