Errata: November 2012, ChiMat have identified errors in the data used for four of the indicators in the spine chart for the 2012 Child Health Profiles: Children killed / seriously injured in road traffic accidents, hospital admissions doe to injury, hospital admissions for mental health conditions and hospital admissions as a result of self harm. In the East of England, these are:
• Essex, road traffic accidents were no significant difference to the England average, now better than the England average
• Bedford, road traffic accidents were worse than England average, now no significant difference
• Central Bedfordshire hospital admissions as a result of self-harm were better than the England average, now no significant difference
• East of England, road traffic accidents were no significant difference to the England average, now better than the England average
As a result part two of this presentation which contained those indicators has been withdrawn. For further details see: http://www.chimat.org.uk/profiles/static
