New Annual Report of the Director of Public Health

The Director of Public Health in every local authority in England is required to produce an annual report on the health of their residents.

This report considers those issues affecting Hampshire’s population that result in poor health over time and early, but often avoidable, reliance on healthcare and social care services. Often, a few minor lifestyle changes would mean that people could spend a far greater proportion of their life as years of healthy life, avoiding the need to access health and social care.

Reducing Serious Violence

Reducing Serious Violence – Annual Report of Director of Public Health 2018-19

Despite Hampshire being a relatively safe place to live, the numbers of violent incidents are increasing. Every incident has a devastating impact on the individuals involved, their families and communities. A public health approach to reducing violence helps us to explore what we know about violence locally, identify where we can intervene to prevent it, and to develop and scale up these interventions.

This report highlights the significant amount of work going on across Hampshire to reduce serious violence and includes recommendations for further action.
