The Population Health Hub (PHH) is a multi-organisation group which brings together colleagues from health, public health, and business intelligence to enable, analyse and undertake population health management approaches.
The Hub is split into two groups: the steering group, and the smaller core group. The steering group's function is to ensure the development and delivery of population health management programmes and the JSNA is well managed and embedded in local decision-making by the core group.
From April 2022, the Hub will release a newsletter containing information on the different projects its members are undertaking.

PCMD currently holds data from 1997 up until the most recent monthly data extract, based on the 2011 census structures. Monthly data is added by the second week of the following month.

The PCMD is managed by NHS Digital and is updated monthly using a file of death records from the Office for National Statistics being accessed via DARS.
