CLiK data has been (and continues to be) used across a wide range of projects and in many different ways, including:
- To inform the specification for the Wellness service (launched 2019), the whole system approach to obesity and the subsequent Healthy Weight Declaration;
* This ensured the Wellness service design matched the needs of the population, and identified a requirement to take action on obesity levels in Kirklees.
- In Health Impact Assessments for major building developments, and to support decision-making around planning applications for hot food takeaways and licensed premises;
* This supports the creation of heathier living environments, and reduces the risk of those areas that already have the worst health outcomes getting worse.
- In Health Needs Assessments, including the Kirklees Mental Health and Wellbeing Needs Assessment and across most sections of the Kirklees Joint Strategic Assessment web site;
* This is used by commissioners to identify areas of need and make informed decisions about existing and planned services.
- To identify mental health risks by demographic group at a local level;
* This intelligence is being used to support Councillors across the 7 Kirklees Places with the implementation of interventions to improve the mental wellbeing of their population.
- To gain local insight around protected characteristic groups;
* This ensures inequalities are being highlighted and can be appropriately addressed.
- To measure performance against a range of indicators in the Kirklees Outcomes Framework;
* This provides the ability to benchmark and monitor progress towards the 7 Kirklees Outcomes, ensuring the Council and partners are contributing to improved outcomes.
