The Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID) South East and the South East Local Knowledge and Intelligence Service have published a data pack on inclusion health groups for the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West region. This document is now available via the ‘needs assessments and further resources’ section of the Wokingham Borough Observatory.
Inclusion health groups refer to people who are socially excluded, typically experience multiple overlapping risk factors for poor health.
The data pack provides a one-off summary of available data and evidence for inclusion health groups. It presents an initial overview to support an understanding of the need in the local area, and provides a resource including data and summaries that can be taken out and used as required, as well as be further developed.
For each inclusion health group, the key messages for systems are presented, followed by an overview of health issues and available data. Each section also includes links to further resources and organisations.
It is recommended that the data pack is used in conjunction with the newly published National Framework for NHS Action on Inclusion Health.
