Postcode lookup tool

A Postcode Lookup Tool has been created to allow users to match a set of inputted postcodes to a range of geographies (e.g. LSOA, ward, district, CCG boundaries) as well as information around deprivation, which has been collated from various secondary sources. This file contains approximately 59,000 postcodes in the West Sussex area and was last updated in June 2016.

Please note: postcodes and other boundaries change regularly and as a result some postcodes may be not be the most up to date, and some postcodes may be missing or terminated. As such the tool should be used with these caveats in mind.

Children’s Workforce Public Health Dashboard

The Children’s Workforce Public Health Profile (2016) is an interactive dashboard that summarises a wide range of data (e.g. demographic, socioeconomic, health and early years) at Children and Family Centre level. This profile aims to help the Children’s Workforce monitor changes in the under 5 population within their centre area. This profile supports the West Sussex Health4Families Programme.

Adult health, disabilities and mental health projections

This workbook has been drafted to adapt the Projecting Adult Needs and Service Information (PANSI) model developed by the Institute of Public Care (commissioned by the Department of Health). This resource brought together the various research and prevalence assumptions relating to health and social care needs of working age adults (in this work in the main referring to 18-64 year olds). This has been locally adapted to use WSCC population projections are used (as opposed to ONS projections).

Adult health, disabilities and mental health projections for older people

This workbook has been drafted to adapt the Projecting Older People Population Information System (POPPI) model developed by the Institute of Public Care (commissioned by the Department of Health). This resource brings together various prevalence assumptions relating to health and social care needs of older people – people aged 65 years or over. There is a corresponding model for working aged adults called PANSI. This has been locally adapted to use WSCC population projections are used (as opposed to ONS projections).
