PHE easy to use data tool supports population health planning

Nursing teams are increasingly involved in planning disease prevention measures across their primary care network area as part of the population health planning remit.

Data to support this work is available in an easily accessible format from Public Health England. The data tool enables the user to see trends across a selected area in conditions such as CVD, diabetes and kidney disease. It also includes information about age, gender, ethnicity and social deprivation within specific areas which can support the way prevention services is planned and promoted. Comparisons can be made with other similar areas, and against the regional and national averages, and the information can be downloaded as a spreadsheet or PDF report.
