Integrated Specialist Public Health Nursing Service (ISPHNS) Intelligence Support Document

This document examines the health and wellbeing of children and young people in the East Riding of Yorkshire to consider the needs of the population.

East Riding Debt Needs Assessment Update
Spring 2021, produced by the Corporate Strategy, Policy, Performance and Risk Management Team
In 2016 the Council and its partners undertook a debt needs assessment to better understand our residents’ needs and to inform strategy development and service delivery. The council funds various advice and support services to help people address their debt related issues, both through internally provided services and some which are externally commissioned. This refresh of the Needs Assessment comes at a particularly challenging time, where more of our residents than ever before are likely to be experiencing debt issues, perhaps for the first time, as a result of the social and economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) 2018/19 Intelligence Support Document update
October 2020, produced by the Public Health Intelligence Team
The National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) measures the height and weight of children in reception class (aged 4 to 5 years) and year 6 (aged 10 to 11 years) to assess overweight and obesity levels in children within primary schools. It was initially established in 2006/07 and this document aims to provide a summary update of the NCMP results for the school year 2018/19. It primarily focusses on the prevalence of obesity within the East Riding and also the prevalence of underweight children. An update for 2019/20 is expected in the summer of 2021.
Mental Health and Dementia Needs Assessment
February 2020, produced by the Public Health Intelligence Team
Mental health for each individual is different and is affected by individual factors and experiences, social interaction, social structures and resources, in addition to cultural values. An individual’s mental health is influenced throughout the life course and events throughout life can impact each individual differently. Mental health conditions affect more than 25% of people at any time and no other health condition matches this in terms of prevalence, persistence and breadth of impact. Mental health is a public health issue and reducing the prevalence of mental health conditions is one of public health’s most major challenges.
|Sexual Health in the East Riding: Intelligence Support Document
November 2019, produced by the Public Health Intelligence Team
Sexual ill health and wellbeing is strongly linked to deprivation and health inequality. It presents a significant cost to the public purse as well as to the individual, with consequences including episodes of discomfort, long-term disability, emotional feelings of regret and possible discrimination. In order to improve sexual health, we need an understanding of the sexual health needs of the local population within the East Riding of Yorkshire (ERY). Data from this rapid needs assessment will be used to inform commissioning and service design) and forms part of the overall East Riding of Yorkshire ( ) process.

|Vulnerable Children and Young People in the East Riding Intelligence Support Document

|Oral Health and Epidemiology Intelligence Support Document
July 2019, produced by the Public Health Intelligence Team
Oral health is an important component of health which is often overlooked and can have profound effects on the general wellbeing and quality of life of individuals. Dental and gum diseases are predominantly preventable through good self-care and efficient dental services. With tooth decay as the most common oral disease affecting children and young people in England, it is important to educate and promote good oral health to children from a young age. In order to improve oral health we need to have an understanding of the oral health needs of the local population in ERY. Data from this rapid needs assessment will inform commissioning of children and young people’s oral health services and forms part of the overall East Riding ( ) process.

|Ageing Well Intelligence document
May 2017, produced by the Public Health Intelligence Team
The aim is to provide key points to inform recommendations, target interventions and potential commissioning decisions. The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that most countries in the developed world agree the definition of an older person as 65 years and over. Most of the supporting information summarised here uses this age range, however some sources are slightly younger or older (60+ or 75+). Comparisons with East Riding can be made against England Averages and with “nearest neighbours” – local authority and CCG areas that allow comparisons in terms of social and economic features to facilitate statistical comparisons.
