- approximately a fifth (20%) of the population are persons aged 65 years and over
- less than one in 30 (3%) are aged 85 years and over.
Every year, Surrey County Council’s Public Health team produce a Health Profile for us. We use this information to work out what services are most important to our local population’s health needs and how we can ‘do more for less’ to make sure we are getting the best value for money.
The document describes the health needs of our population; the factors which affect health; patterns of different diseases; life expectancy; and health inequality.
