More than half the population of South Norfolk are of working age although there are higher numbers of children and older people than across the county as a whole. The number of older people is set to rise further over the next 20 years. To find out more about our population click here.
While deprivation is better than average and life expectancy is higher than average there are still areas which South Norfolk can target to improve health, such as adult and childhood obesity, physical activity and healthy diet. There is also some evidence that alcohol consumption levels in the more affluent and older section of the population are quite high.
The CCG will work alongside and in partnership with public health, the local authority and the Health and Wellbeing Board to improve health and prevent illness among our patient population.
