Community Health and Wellbeing Profiles
This section contains health and wellbeing profiles for local areas in Devon. Profiles are included for a range of different areas, including towns, GP commissioning consortia, local authorities and localities, and can be accessed through the links below.
These profiles provide a snapshot of a wide range of information for specific areas, and do not go into any one subject in great depth. For more detailed information on specific subject areas, please visit our Health and Wellbeing Topic Pages page. For a more general view, the Devon Overview looks at the overall pattern of health and care needs in the county, including the impact of population change, deprivation and economic conditions.
The Community Health and Wellbeing profiles, alongside the Devon Overview and topic pages are part of the evidence base for the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which is also a function of the Health and Wellbeing Board.
It should be noted that the primary purpose of Joint Strategic Needs Assessments is for health and social care commissioners to plan services, and as such these are technical documents, which is reflected in the language and level of complexity involved.
