ScotPHO profiles

The ScotPHO Online Profiles Tool (OPT) provides access to various public health related indicators grouped in a suite of specialist profiles. The tool allows: interactive functionality, selection of geographical areas (e.g. NHS Board, local authority, intermediate zone)and inter-area comparisons using spine charts. The profiles are intended to increase understanding of local health issues and to prompt further investigation, rather than to be used as a performance management tool. The information needs to be interpreted within a local framework; an indicator may be higher or lower in one area compared to another, but local knowledge is needed to understand and interpret differences.
