Breast Cancer

A map that shows the population estimates of breast cancer incidence by age standardised rate (all ages) in Bolton by ward.

The Environment and Health Atlas for England and Wales is an independent publication produced by the Small Area Health Statistics Unit (SAHSU), an academic unit funded by the Medical Research Council and Public Health England. The aims of the atlas are:

  • To provide baseline information for policy makers and the public on geographic patterns of environmental agents and disease.
  • To help in development of hypotheses to understand and explain variability in disease risk that may relate to the environment, lifestyle factors and/or location.
  • Following on from this, to help in development of research to investigate potential causal relationships between environment and health factors – where either evidence or lack of evidence for an effect provides important information to inform public health and policy.

The atlas provides maps of the geographical variations for a range of health conditions and environmental agents at a small-area scale (census wards). The maps have been developed as a resource for those working in public health and public health policy and for the general public to better understand the geographic distribution of environmental factors and disease.

This evidence briefing examines the economic costs of physical inactivity (sedentary behaviour) in relation to:

  • Cardiovascular Disease - CHD & Stroke
  • Cancer - Bowel & Breast Cancer
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Falls

Whilst this report is brief, it provides a snapshot of costs and is a good starting point for any commissioning activity related to above topics

This is the Breast Cancer Screening JSNA Indicator Sheet from the Behaviour and Access to Services section. JSNA Indicator Sheets summarise the current position and recent trends for Bolton, comparators to Bolton, and inequalities across population groups and geographical areas of Bolton.

Headlines

  • In Bolton breast cancer screening coverage is currently lower than is average for the North West, but not significantly so;
  • The coverage in Bolton over time has been mid to high 70% since 2003/04;
  • Bolton, with the North West, is around average when we consider coverage across the country;
  • Bolton's main Trust does however refer a higher proportion of screened patients than average for England.

This is the Incidence of Breast Cancer JSNA Indicator Sheet from the Disease and Ill Health section. JSNA Indicator Sheets summarise the current position and recent trends for Bolton, comparators to Bolton, and inequalities across population groups and geographical areas of Bolton.

Headlines

  • Child mortalities from accidents are very rare with just 15 cases in Bolton between 2002 and 2010;
  • Hospital admissions for serious accidental injury in Bolton are erratic for children aged 0-4 years, but are steadily reducing in line with England for children aged 5-14 years;
  • At national level (necessary due to small numbers at district level), at least a third of accidental deaths are due to "other transport accidents"; the exception being children aged 0-4 years where suffocation is the most common cause;
  • There are inequalities across NS-SEC groups with the less affluent classifications having far higher rates of accidental child mortality.
