Public Health England - Data and Knowledge Gateway
Public Health England (PHE) provides many high quality data and analysis tools and resources for public health professionals. The PHE data and knowledge gateway provides direct access to these resources.

Who it is for
The resources help local government and health service professionals make decisions and plans to improve people's health and reduce inequalities in their area. They can be used by anyone with an interest in understanding the health of the population and how it varies across the country.

Types of content
The resources cover a wide range of public health areas, including:
  • specific health conditions – such as cancer, mental health, cardiovascular disease
  • lifestyle risk factors – such as smoking, alcohol and obesity
  • wider determinants of health – such as environment, housing and deprivation
  • health protection, and differences between population groups, including adults, older people, and children.
The tools were produced by organisations that are now part of PHE, including public health observatories, the Health Protection Agency, cancer registries, UK screening programmes and the National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse.
