Health Counts 2024 survey

by | Mar 24, 2024 | WellBN

Background and purpose of Health Counts 2024 survey

     

      • Approximately every 10 years, the Public Health team in Brighton & Hove, have funded a large survey of Health and Wellbeing of the local population

      • The last survey was in 2012 – http://www.bhconnected.org.uk/content/surveys

      • It remains the only source of small area level data for the city on lifestyles, health and wellbeing and related factors like social connectedness and the building blocks of health

      • It’s the only robust source of local data on these issues by protected characteristics/other key population groups in the city

      • It provides important evidence of inequalities within the city, and faced by particular groups – we still reference the 2012 survey findings!

    The evidence provided by Health Counts:

       

        • Feeds into local strategies to improve health and wellbeing and reduce inequalities

        • Is a vital source for the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

        • Helps meet the requirements to consider the Equalities Act in commissioning and providing services

      Run by University of Brighton/Brighton & Sussex Medical School in collaboration with Brighton & Hove City Council Public Health Department and supported by NHS Sussex, Healthwatch Brighton & Hove, Brighton and Hove Federation.

      Initial results available in June 2024 and full information available in the second half of 2024.

      Survey to be open from 18th March 2024 to 24th April 2024 –
