Plymouth City Council’s Public Health Team has access to a wealth of information related to the health of the local population.
This includes information on mortality and morbidity as well as information from local population-wide surveys. The team are also able to access data from regional and national bodies such as Public Health England and NHS Digital. This information is used across the council to enable health outcomes to be monitored and health improvement initiatives to be prioritised. However, there is widespread recognition that these sources could be further exploited by groups and individual with the capacity to derive added value from such analysis.
In order to explore the possibilities for this and to gain an overview of these sources of information two information learning events have been arranged. They will be delivered by members of the Public Health Team and will provide an opportunity to hear more detail about the sources and their potential uses.
This free event is open to all and registration is now open for the May session. Please register your place via the above link or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
