Our overviews of health and wellbeing across Cheshire East

jsna logo

The JSNA work programme produces a range of overview documents that help us to understand current challenges across Cheshire East.

The Cheshire East Tartan Rug is our way of understanding how health and wellbeing varies by ward across Cheshire East. It is a tool to look at the health and wellbeing of each ward and compares it to all other wards across England in relation to a variety of different health issues. All the data for the Tartan Rug comes from the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities and can be accessed using their Local Health profiles: Local Health. Public Health Data for small geographic areas - OHID (phe.org.uk).

It is a particularly important tool for us in Cheshire East, as although health and wellbeing in Cheshire East on average looks to be similar or better than the England average, there is very significant variation across the wards, with some wards experiencing considerably worse health and wellbeing. This variation is known as health inequality.

As well as this, we have developed a new dashboard to help people to look in more detail at areas particularly important to them. This will be published soon.

Progress on the Health and Wellbeing Strategy outcomes are being monitored via the Cheshire East Joint Outcomes Framework

Further overview information on health and wellbeing (not produced through the JSNA programme but often considered within it) can also be found through the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities Public Health Profiles tool.

Data for individual general practices can be found at: Fingertips - general practice and for individual wards at: Fingertips - local health.
