Health, Disease and Mortality

This is the 2015 ‘Segment Tool’ report for Bolton.

The Segment Tool has been developed by the Public Health England (PHE) Knowledge and Intelligence Teams (London and East Midlands) and provides information on the causes of death that are driving inequalities in life expectancy at local area level. Targeting the causes of death which contribute most to the life expectancy gap should have the biggest impact on reducing inequalities. You can access the tool by clicking here and view any other local authority.

The tool uses data for 2010-12 and allows users to view the breakdown of the life expectancy gap both within local authority areas, and between a local authority and England as a whole. The tool is provided in an easy to use Excel workbook, which can be downloaded below. The tool uses macros, and you should make sure that these are enabled before starting to use the tool.

This resource describes how public health in a number of councils has started to use the opportunities of a local government setting to improve health and wellbeing.

The case studies were chosen because they show a range of ways in which public health in councils is approaching working with local business. They include councils spread across England, covering both rural and urban environments and with varying levels of deprivation and affluence. The LGA looks forward to seeing many more such examples of local energy and innovation in the months and years to come, and seeing the measurable impact it will have. The challenge for us all is not just to identify good practice, but to champion and share it.

Case studies include:

  • Creating a healthier workplace
  • Creating a less obeseogenic enviornment
  • Improving child vaccination rates
  • Working with early year providers

The chart shows key indicators of the social determinants of health, health outcomes and social inequality that broadly correspond to the policy recommendations proposed in ‘Fair Society, Healthy Lives’. Results for each indicator for this local authority are shown below. On the chart, the value for Bolton is shown as a circle, against the range of results for England, shown as a bar. For three indicators, local authority figures are not and so only the regional value is reported. This resource can be downloaded by clicking here: Bolton

This guideline updates and replaces NICE guideline CG55 (published September 2007). It offers evidence-based advice on the care of women and their babies during labour and immediately after the birth. It covers healthy women with uncomplicated pregnancies entering labour at low risk of developing intrapartum complications. New recommendations have been added in a number of areas, including choosing place of birth, care during the latent first stage of labour, transfer of care, fetal assessment and monitoring during labour (particularly cardiotocography compared with intermittent auscultation) and management of the third stage of labour.
