Population Health Hub

The Population Health Hub (PHH) is a multi-organisation group which brings together colleagues from health, public health, and business intelligence to enable, analyse and undertake population health management approaches. 

The Hub is split into two groups: the steering group, and the smaller core group. The steering group's function is to ensure the development and delivery of population health management programmes and the JSNA is well managed and embedded in local decision-making by the core group.

As part of work investigating the growing winter pressures and the cost of living crisis, the population health hub created the Cost of Living Crisis in York: Understanding and Reducing the Health Impacts data pack. This provides information about people in York whose health is likely to be affected by the cost of living crisis. This includes people living with respiratory conditions who may be at risk of harm from winter and cold homes. 


In 2021, colleagues from the Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) undertook work in the management of type 2 diabetes in York. A report can be found here: York Population Health Management Diabetes Project Summary 


The Primary Care Mortality Database allows authorised users to access mortality data provided at the registration of a death. This includes:

  • demographic details
  • cause of death
  • place of death
  • certifying GP details
  • coroner's details 

PCMD currently holds data from 1997 up until the most recent monthly data extract, based on the 2011 census structures. Monthly data is added by the second week of the following month. User access to the data is based on the upper tier local authority or the clinical commissioning group (CCG) structures they are responsible for.

The PCMD is managed by NHS Digital and is updated monthly using a file of death records from the Office for National Statistics being accessed via DARS.


A&E Activity by LSOA. This data was compiled by a member of the Population Health Hub Steering Group. It provides an analysis of A&E attendance by small areas in the City of York (LSOA). Rates are standardised by age and sex and gives us information on the charactistics of the population by location and levels of deprivation. This includes distances to hospital as well to GP practices and pharmacies. 


Primary Care Network (PCN) Ward Populations. This gives a breakdown of the resident population of each of the five York PCNs, by ward. The PCN's are not geographical areas that can be drawn on a map, but groups of GP practices spread across the City. The residents registered to each PCN could reside anywhere in the city. The aim of this data is show if there are wards with larger numbers of residents at one of the PCNs, to aid with service planning.

CORE20PLU5 In York ‘Place’ of Humber and North Yorkshire ICB. This is a national NHS England and Improvement initiative aimed at reducing health inequalities through the concerted efforts of the health and care system, both at a national, regional and local level.
