Creating a Healthier, Happier and Fairer Wales is the public health strategic plan for 2015-18.  The priorities are:
  • Working in a different way to improve our health
  • Giving our children a great start in life
  • Making sure primary care services are right for you
  • Making sure that you get the best and safest NHS care
  • Influencing policies to help improve and protect your health
  • Protecting you and your family
  • Making sure our workforce is doing the best for you

Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) tool - indicator refresh and health board boundary changes
 
The Public Health Wales Observatory has released its latest Public Health Outcomes Framework reporting tool indicator refresh as part of our update schedule and following health board boundary changes.
 
The following indicators have been updated with the latest available data:
 
  • Life expectancy at birth
  • Healthy life expectancy at birth
  • The gap in life expectancy at birth between the most and least deprived
  • School leavers with skills and qualifications
  • Quality of housing
  • Quality of the air we breathe
  • Smoking in pregnancy
  • Children age 5 of healthy weight
  • Hip fractures among older people
  • Premature death from key non communicable diseases
  • Deaths from injuries
  • Deaths from road traffic injuries
  • Suicides
 
In addition, all health board level data in the tool, including historical trend data, has been updated to reflect the health board boundary change which came into effect on the 1st April, where possible.
 
The Public Health Outcomes Framework aims to inspire and inform action to improve the health of the people living in Wales. Alongside the reporting tool, evidence statements to support the Public Health Outcomes Framework indicators are also available. These will be of use to Public Services Boards, Health Boards and Local Authorities to inform well-being plans and decision making. They may also be of interest to policy makers, the third sector and practitioners.
