City and Hackney Population Health Hub (PHH)

The City and Hackney PHH was established in 2021 to support the City and Hackney Place-Based Partnership and wider system partners to reduce health inequalities and improve the health of our population.

What is Population Health?

Population health is described by the King’s Fund as …

“…an approach that aims to improve physical and mental health outcomes, promote wellbeing and reduce health inequalities across an entire population. Improving population health and reducing health inequalities requires action across all ‘four pillars’* of a population health system.”

This figure represents the four pillars as indicated in the four circles.

Taking a population health approach means:

  • rebalancing investment across the four pillars
  • focusing attention on the areas of overlap and intersection (the ‘rose petals’) – where there are the greatest opportunities for impact. 
  • system partners taking shared responsibility for improving population health

Effective, system-wide action requires a common understanding of population health drivers, outcomes and effective interventions.
