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 Coronary heart disease (CHD) JSNA Indicator Sheet from the Mortality 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.



  • For both sexes mortality from colorectal cancer is currently lower in Bolton than it is regionally and nationally;
  • There is little difference between quintiles, but there is evidence of a growing inequality gap between the most deprived quintile and Bolton;
  • The geographical variation of mortality is more evenly distributed across Bolton than many other causes of death (which tend to cluster in the more deprived areas around the Town Centre);
  • In some parts of Bolton mortality is presently 80% higher than the national average;
  • Bolton has a lower mortality rate than average for its peer group.

The Medicine for Managers briefings are succinct profiles of particular diseases or conditions compiled by Dr Paul Lambden for They provide a useful overview of the disease, with an explanation of the causes and possible treatments, as well as epidemiological information. This briefing centres on coronary heart disease.
