City and Hackney Public Health Team

The Public Health Service supports a diverse and rapidly evolving population in Hackney and the City of London.

Hackney, characterised by its young age profile and rich cultural diversity, including significant Turkish, Black, and Charedi Jewish communities, is projected to grow to 294,000 residents by 2032. While life expectancy in Hackney is rising (currently 79.3 years for men and 83.7 years for women), it remains below the London and national averages for men. Despite being one of the most deprived local authority areas in the country, Hackney’s relative deprivation is decreasing.

In contrast, the City of London has a small resident population of 10,100 but sees over 415,000 daily commuters. While the City is less deprived than many other local authorities in England and London, it still has pockets of high deprivation. Health outcomes in both Hackney and the City reflect the unique characteristics of their populations.
