Older Peoples Isolation Index: Results for Wirral (March 2015) 
Wirral postcodes were mapped by their chance of containing older people who are at risk of social isolation, using an older people isolation index (OPII) based on Mosaic geodemographic data. We found that Bidston & St James ward and Birkenhead & Tranmere ward had the highest average older people isolation index score. There were three hotspots of potential older people at risk of isolation around Oxton, West Kirby & Hoylake, and New Ferry, Bebington & Bromborough.
