Health atlas reveals patterns of illness across North-East England


A NEW on-line health “atlas” has revealed striking patterns of disease in [North East England] – including high rates of lung cancer but lower than average cases of skin cancer.

The high resolution maps covering England and Wales show stark variations in the risk of cancer and other diseases in different areas.

The maps, produced by the UK Small Area Health Statistics Unit at Imperial College London, reveal that lung cancer is far more common in the North-East and North-West of England than areas including Wales and the South-West.
