Director of Public Health Annual Report

The Director of Public Health has a statutory duty to produce an independent annual report that looks at the health and wellbeing of our local population. The report is intended to be a key document for all organisations and individuals involved in improving the health of the people of Southend-on-Sea.

In Southend-on-Sea, the Annual Public Health Report explores different themes each year. This in-depth look allows us to identify our key priorities in these areas and make recommendations for further actions through which the greatest improvements in health can be made.
