Help and Support

Statistical Help is available giving information on epidemiology and statistical terms, and statistical methodology used within the various reports on the website.

Index List is available if you are looking for information on a specific topic. This gives a list of various topics and gives a list of documents that contain information on that topic.

Whilst specific epidemiologists within the team have produced specific reports and completed certain analyses, the workload tends to be spread out. This means that you do not have to contact a specific person for a specific query. However, if a colleague is more appropriate, your query will be passed on to them.

The epidemiologists/statisticians within Public Health Sciences can help with the following:

  • Give further information about Hull's Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)
  • Help understand the health and wellbeing needs of Hull's population in terms of the following:
    • Population
    • Age / gender
    • Deprivation (IMD)
    • Ethnicity
    • General physical and mental health status of population
    • Prevalence of risk factors (smoking, alcohol, obesity, diet, exercise, etc)
    • Prevalence of diseases
    • Hospital admission rates
    • Mortality and life expectancy
  • Questionnaire design and survey design and advice
  • Explanation of and help in using statistical terms like confidence intervals, standardisation, etc
  • Explanation of data including data presented in tables or plots/charts, etc
  • Predictive modelling / predicting future trends or needs or towards targets
  • Mapping, analyses and presentation of a wide range of segmentation tools (including ACORN and IMD), social marketing, inequality, etc to assist psychographic and socio-economic differentiation
  • Provide a critical friend to all those collecting and using health-related data and information

History since 2002

Primary Care Trusts were first established in 2000.

In 2002, the Public Health Development Team worked across Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Primary Care Trusts (Eastern Hull, West Hull, East Yorkshire, and Yorkshire Wolds and Coast).

In April 2006, the Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire teams were split, and the epidemiologists / statisticians within the (larger) Public Health Development Team moved to Hull and became the Public Health Sciences team within the Hull's Public Health Directorate.

In October 2006, the four PCTs merged to become two PCTs: Hull (Teaching) PCT and East Riding of Yorkshire PCT, which were later known as NHS Hull and NHS East Riding of Yorkshire respectively.

Following changes to the NHS and public health as at April 2013, public health moved from the Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) within the NHS to local authorities, and PCTs have ceased to exist. The Public Health Sciences team moved to Brunswick House (local authority premises) in December 2012 in preparation for the formal move in April 2013. The Public Health Sciences team are now part of Public Health within Hull City Council. Most of the remaining (non public health) staff employed by Hull Primary Care Trust were transferred to NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) or the North Yorkshire and Humber Commissioning Support Unit (NYHCSU).
