2008 Annual Report of the South East Regional Directors of Public Health - Executive summary


Robert Kyffin

Subject Keywords: Annual Report, Health strategy, Regional director
Type: Report
Region: United Kingdom

This is the executive summary of the first joint annual report of Professor Yvonne Doyle and Professor John Newton, the South East England regional directors of public health.

The South East is one of the healthiest regions in England, but the continued presence of significant inequalities means there is no room for complacency: while some areas have very good health, there is also evidence of the diseases of affluence and some pockets of real deprivation and poor health.

The 2008 annual report aims to:

- explain the recent changes to the regional health and social care function, and provide an overview of national policy developments

- focus on the mechanisms for delivering the regionâ?Ts health and social care priorities

- serve as a progress report and data compendium on the six themes of the South East England Health Strategy: health inequalities, a sustainable region, safer communities, employment and health, children and young people, and later life.

In addition to the executive summary, the full annual report and six Health Strategy theme chapters can be downloaded separately via the links below. An Excel workbook containing the data used for the charts and maps in the report is also available.
