Six indicators within the 2011 profiles for the 23 North West local authorities are specific to this area and were chosen to more closely reflect local priorities for children’s and young people’s health, as set out in the guide for commissioners of children’s, young people’s and maternal health and well-being services published by NHS North West in March 2011. For more information, see the North West specific Indicator Guide.

Any published errata for previous editions of the Child Health Profiles are available.
