These system profiling tools are available to all. They are primarily intended to provide better access to information and intelligence to support commissioning, planning and providing services locally. The tools bring together a wide range of publicly available information to offer a broad picture of mental health and dementia and provide the means to focus on specific topic areas. The tools enable and advocate benchmarking against peers. The core aim is to provide information for improvement, not judgement.

Comments on our tools are welcome. Please send your feedback and questions to

Changes in profiles display

The display of our Fingertips profiles is going through a period of transition. This is to ensure that all Public Health England profiles on Fingertips are aligned in presentation. Over the next few months there will be changes in relation to: indicator names; rationale within Indicator Definitions and Supporting Information section; data quality flags; and benchmarking method of indicators with a change from Blue-Orange-Blue (BOB) to Red-Amber-Green (RAG) where this is appropriate

We will notify you of any changes made through our monthly bulletin and on the profile landing page.

In March 2019 the Neurology data catalogue was updated. The data catalogue contains a list of all currently available data, information and intelligence resources relating to neurological conditions. It aims to signpost and increase awareness/understanding of the neurological needs in society at both a national and local level.

The maintenance of the Neurology Profiles was stopped in July 2017. Similar products that provide local data and intelligence include the Neurology Hospital Activity Compendium and the NHS Right Care focus packstool and data
