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.

Headlines

 

  • 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.

This is the Cardiovascular disease (CVD) 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.

Headlines

 

  • CVD mortality in Bolton is higher than both the national and regional average;
  • CVD mortality is reducing locally, regionally, and nationally, but Bolton remains high compared to England;
  • In some parts of Bolton the mortality rate is up to 80% higher than the national average;
  • Mortality is greatest in the more deprived areas around the Town Centre;
  • The inequality gap in Bolton for CVD persists, whilst quintile 3 is beginning to show a higher mortality rate than quintile 2;
  • Bolton has the 4th highest CVD mortality in its peer group.

 

 

This is the Cardiovascular Disease 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:

  • An estimated 24,709 people in Bolton have CVD; as a rate this is comparable to England, and lower than the North West;
  • Using self-reported angina as a proxy for CVD, we see an inequality gradient in Bolton with the most deprived fifth of the population more likely to complain of angina;
  • In Bolton, angina is more common in non-White ethnicities;
  • Disabled people and LGB groups are also more likely to suffer from angina in Bolton;
  • Hospitalised prevalence of CVD is lower in Bolton than typical for
    the Greater Manchester connurbation, but is much higher in the
    more deprived areas around the Town Centre.

This is the Premature Mortality: Cardiovascular Disease 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.

Headlines

  • Premature CVD mortality in Bolton is higher than both the national and regional average for both sexes;
  • Premature CVD mortality is reducing locally, regionally, and nationally, but Bolton remains high compared to England;
  • In some parts of Bolton the premature CVD mortality rate is more than double the national average;
  • Mortality is greatest in the more deprived areas around the Town Centre;
  • The inequality gap in Bolton for premature CVD appears to be widening and there is a strict gradient in mortality across quintiles;
  • Bolton is above average for its peer group.

 The Medicine for Managers briefings are succinct profiles of particular diseases or conditions compiled by Dr Paul Lambden for nhsmanagers.net. 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 heart failure.

This report provides the results of directly standardised rate (DSR) calculations at PCT level for Bolton compared to Greater Manchester PCTs.  The purpose is to see whether any changes in the Bolton admission rate in recent periods is also evident across the Greater Manchester region.

These cardiovascular disease (CVD) profiles provide a snapshot of key issues relating to heart disease and stroke, including prevention, incidence, mortality, risk factors and treatments. These profiles have been designed to help health and well-being boards and local health services to assess the impact of these elements of cardiovascular disease on their local populations and the services provided to meet those needs. They are intended to inform commissioning and planning decisions to tackle CVD and improve the health of local communities. To view please click here: http://bit.ly/Z2FFtG
