- NHS Derbyshire County 2010 The profiles contain 23 alcohol-related indicators for every local authority and 24 for every primary care trust in England (click here to go to the LAPE website to see profiles for other areas). This year, key indicators in healthcare, criminal justice, benefits claimants, drinking patterns and life lost due to alcohol have been used in combination to identify and map those areas experiencing different overall levels of alcohol-related harms.
'Vital Signs' are a collection of national performance indicators that are used to measure how the NHS is performing locally. Vital Signs have been developed by the Department of Health to help organisations like NHS Derbyshire County to set a framework to allow more decision making to take place locally. The idea is that we will be able to develop healthcare in Derbyshire to better meet the needs of local people.
