Life Expectancy and Mortality
Diseases and long term conditions have a major impact on the health of a population. Monitoring the main causes of death in Derbyshire; cancer, liver, respiratory and circulatory disease, and people who are dying at younger ages from these diseases, ensures that public health can identify the needs of the community and ensure early detection, access to effective treatment and improvement to the wider determinants of health to reduce premature mortality from these major diseases. The top causes of death from disease in England are widely considered preventable – lifestyle choices and wider determinant factors, such as smoking, substance abuse and poverty, all contribute to premature mortality from disease.
