Public Health Annual Reports

2022 Public Health Annual Report (Video)

Public Health Annual Report (Video Transcript)



The Public Health Annual Report (PHAR) is the independent annual report produced by the Director of Public Health. It is a statutory requirement for all local authorities to produce one. This year, the 2022 report is presented in two parts:

  • A video (top link) which focuses on the key role of the Community, Voluntary and Faith sector in supporting local people and residents to be resilient in challenging circumstances
  • A State of the Borough report which presents a range of statistics to report on health and wellbeing in the borough

The work highlighted in the video/report supports the following priorities of the Wirral Plan 2026:

  • Brighter Futures: Working together for brighter futures for our children, young people and their families by breaking the cycle of poor outcomes for all regardless of their background.
  • Safe and Vibrant Communities: Working for safe and vibrant communities where our residents feel safe and are proud to live and raise their families.
  • Active and Healthy Lives: Working to provide happy, active and healthy lives for all, with the right care, at the right time, to enable residents to live longer and healthier lives.

These reports summarise the progress made against the Wirral Health Inequalities Action Plan on an annual basis. Wirral Health Inequalities Annual Report 2009-10
