Local Health is a new tool within the Health Profiles programme. Health Profiles are commissioned by the Department of Health and produced by the Public Health Observatories in England working in partnership. They provide quality assured health information presented clearly for users within health service, local government and the public.

Effects of the 2008 Recession on Health (report)

Public Health Intelligence has recently published a report, "Recession Indicators: The Effect of the 2008 Economic Recession upon Population Health in North Yorkshire and York". City of York Council along with NYCC and the PCT helped to determine the range of indicators to include.

The report finds evidence that the recession and consequent increased unemployment are associated with raised anti-depressant prescribing rates, increased hospital admissions for alcohol-related harm, a rise in emergency admissions and possible increases in admissions to mental health specialities. The effects on unemployment and health have been greatest in the more deprived areas of the PCT, except for emergency admissions, which have seen a similar rise across all levels of deprivation.
