Health

Overall, the health of people living in Gloucestershire is better than the England average. Life expectancy for both men and women is higher than the national average. However, there are areas of Gloucestershire where residents experience poorer health than nationally. Gloucestershire’s health and wellbeing priorities are tackling health inequalities; reducing obesity; reducing the harm caused by alcohol; improving mental health; and improving health and wellbeing into older age.

In this section, we provide a range of information and reports on some of the key priority health and wellbeing areas in Gloucestershire with an aim to improving understanding of the health needs of local population. These include needs assessments and analytical reports produced by Gloucestershire County Council and Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, as well as links to the latest profiles and indicators published by Public Health England.
