Annual Public Health Report

This is the main page for all of the Suffolk Annual Public Health Reports. 

This is an independent report from the Director of Public Health and Protection. This is a core part of the Suffolk Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and feeds directly in to the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWS). 

The 2019 Annual Public Health Report is now available here: 

This year, the focus of the report is children and young people in Suffolk, Suffolk through a child’s eyes.

The written report captures some of the latest data and evidence related to children and young people. 

However, the integral part of this year’s report is the accompanying short film where we have tried to capture what Suffolk children think.  

We have listened to what they have to say about: Friends and Family; Feelings; Fit and Healthy and Future Hopes and Dreams. We have used what they told us, together with local and national evidence, to produce our recommendations.

Make sure you watch our video! It's the main feature of this year's report! https://vimeo.com/360523682 

Being able to talk about dying is essential when it comes to preparing ourselves for our own death. Yet, we often avoid even the word. It is often seen as an uncomfortable topic. But it is vital that both professionals and residents in Suffolk feel as comfortable as possible in talking about their wishes, their requests, their beliefs and discussing those with their families and friends.

That is what this year’s report is all about.

By putting plans in place earlier and thinking about what matters to us and our family, it may be possible to die ‘well’, and in the place of our choosing.

In 2018, we really wanted to illustrate our report title - that everyone leaves a lasting legacy. The designers of this year’s Annual Public Health Report have taken inspiration from artwork produced by individuals at St Nicholas Hospice Care during their Orchard Day Therapy sessions.  The front cover of this year's report is one of the pieces of artwork that was produced.  Also have a look at the summary video from the 2018 Health and Wellbeing Board conference, which focused on end of life

Inclusive growth is one of three key priorities for Suffolk County Council over the next four years.  This year’s Annual Report builds on these newly published system plans and priorities, and further explores the links between health, wealth and wellbeing from a public health perspective.  

The report also links with STPs – encompassing information on population health, inequalities and supporting the wider prevention agenda.  This document is designed to complement the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership’s Economic Strategy, the development of the Suffolk Strategic Planning and Infrastructure Framework and the recently published National Industrial Strategy.
