Research and Reports
This Community Partnerships Health Improvement Delivery Plan (CPHIP) is the first written as part of the Population Health service specification for Bromley by Bow Health Partnership.
The intention of this document is to provide a description of the health of the local population living in Network 6 (Bromley by Bow and Stepney Health) to inform the delivery of programmes of work which aim to improve the health of the local community.
Much work has been done looking at health inequalities: it is well recognised that the social circumstances of a person’s life have a significant impact on their health outcomes.
Therefore, this Needs and Opportunities analysis looks in detail at the health profile of the local community and the factors which we know to contribute to health. This includes individual lifestyle choices and behaviours, and access to appropriate high quality clinical care, but also what are known as the social determinants of health: social, economic, physical and environmental factors which contribute to a person’s health.
We hope that the CPHIP provides a useful summary of the issues and challenges for the health of the local population, and also the strengths, assets and opportunities within the area, providing a foundation to the delivery of programmes of work that effectively meet some of those challenges.
