smoking
SMOKING
  • Smoking is the most important cause of premature death in developed countries and the Health Education Authority (HEA) estimate that 1 in 5 (19%) of all deaths in the UK in 1995 were caused by smoking. More than 1 in 4 deaths between ages 35 and 65 were due to smoking; 1 in every 3 deaths among men and 1 in 5 among women.

good news
GOOD NEWS
  • There have been major improvements in the health of the people of Stoke-on-Trent City over the past 10 years, with noticeable reductions in the mortality from major causes of death and increased longevity. These positive changes suggest that the collaboration between a number of local agencies to plan and work for health gain is bearing fruit. However, changing the health profile of an area is a long-term project and the various joint initiatives taking place will continue to address the key health needs of the local population.
