Locality profiles

During 2019, a review of our locality profile narratives was carried out with key stakeholders across the health and care system in Dorset and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP). This profiles are still in draft and will be finalised as soon as possible. 

Informed by stakeholder feedback, the latest edition of the Locality profile narratives

  • Provides commentary on a wider range of indicators (from Local Health), presenting these by life course to increase the emphasis on wider determinants of health and wellbeing
  • Uses global burden of disease (GBD) as a means of exploring in more detail specific areas of Local Health and general practice based data.

The aim of the locality profiles is to support those working in localities to identify what is working well and to highlight issues to be addressed in the locality.

Historically, the advent of the system wide Sustainability & Transformation Plan [STP] and related developments e.g. Accountable Care Systems [ACS] meant we need to ensure locally appropriate intelligence across all aspects of our work.

The basis for the current work on the STP is the Five Year Forward View which defined three gaps for a system response to address, namely the:

  • Health & Wellbeing gap
  • Care & Quality gap and the
  • Finance gap

The Dorset STP by way of response to this, outlines five programmes:

  1. Prevention at Scale [PAS]
  2. Integrated Community & Primary Care Services
  3. One Acute Network
  4. Workforce and Learning
  5. Digital transformation

As part of the Prevention at Scale programme, we have presented information on population health for each of the 13 localities to support them with the development of their locality transformation plans.
