Our CCG faces some challenging health issues in the North Kirklees population. These are:
- By 2030 20% of our population will be over 65
- Infant death rates – they’re reducing, but still too high
- Smoking related illness
- Obesity and lack of physical activity – especially amongst children
- Dewsbury – 1 in 3 adults have a long term illness.
We are looking closely at how we deliver services so we can help people improve their health and there’ll be more details here as we make progress.
