The latest update to the Public Health Outcomes Framework has recently been published by Public Health England. The Framework contains a range of indicators covering:
- Overarching health (e.g. life expectancy)
- The wider determinants of health (e.g. education, employment, housing)
- Health improvement (e.g. smoking, physical activity)
- Health protection (e.g. vaccination)
- Healthcare and premature mortality (e.g. hospital emergency readmission)
What does this mean for Richmond?
- Healthy life expectancy at birth is 69.7 years for males and is 71.2 years for females (both best in London).
Wider Determinants of Health
- The rate of hospital admissions for violence was 20.5 per 100,000, which is the 2nd lowest rate in London) and shows a decreasing trend.
- The rate of teenage conceptions continued to decrease in Richmond and across the country.
- The rate is 11.7 per 1,000 for all under-18s and 2.0 per 1,000 and for the 13-15 age range.
- The rate of hospital admissions caused by unintentional and deliberate injuries is similar to the London average for 0-4 year olds and 5-14 year olds, but is now bottom quartile in London for 15-24 year olds.
- Fruit and vegetable consumption
- 58% of people are eating the recommended ‘5-a-day’, which is 2nd highest in London.
- People eat, on average, 2.8 portions of fruit and 2.4 portions of vegetables per day.
- The rate of injuries due to falls was 1,983 per 100,000 for people aged 65 and over – significantly lower than the London average.
- The coverage of pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccination (PPV) in over-65s slightly increased to 69%.
- Tuberculosis (TB) incidence fell from 8.0 to 7.2 cases per 100,000 and is the lowest in London.
Healthcare and Premature Mortality
- Infant mortality was 2.5 per 1,000 live births, which remains significantly lower than the England average.
- The rates of admissions for hip fractures were 200 per 100,000 for 65-79 year olds, and 1,357 for people aged over 80 years, which are similar to London and England averages.
