First Sub-regional Bulletin of Health and Social Care Inequalities Monitoring System (HSCIMS)

Creator:

Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety Northern Ireland

Subject Keywords: Health inequalities at Health and Social Care (HSC) Trust level
Type: News
Region: Northern Ireland
Description:

The bulletin provides a picture of health inequalities at Health and Social Care (HSC) Trust level and a detailed comparison of morbidity, mortality, utilisation and access to health and social services between the 20% most deprived areas within a Trust and the overall Trust as well as NI as a whole. 1. The Health and Social Care Inequalities Monitoring System (HSCIMS) comprises a basket of indicators which are monitored over time to assess area differences in mortality, morbidity, utilisation of and access to health and social care services in Northern Ireland. The regional analysis measures inequalities between the 20% most deprived areas and Northern Ireland as a whole (results for rural areas are also compared against Northern Ireland overall). 2. Inequalities between the 20% most deprived areas within a Trust area (defined using the NISRA 2005 Northern Ireland Multiple Deprivation Measure) and the overall Trust are measured. 3. Most of the indicators included in the third regional HSCIMS update bulletin (with the exception of childhood obesity and drug related deaths, as data was not sufficiently robust at the more localised level) remain. The teenage births indicator is reported using a three years average, as opposed to a single year as in the third update bulletin, in order to provide more robust comparisons at HSC Trust level. 4. The results presented in the report are based on data from the General Register Office, Hospital Inpatient System, Child Health System, Northern Ireland Cancer Registry, Business Services Organisation and the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service.
