Avoidable Mortality 2016

Produced by the Public Health (Strategic Policy, Planning and Performance)
Authored by Statistics Jersey and published on 12 Mar 2018
Prepared internally, no external cost


This report presents figures for Jersey on death due to causes that are considered avoidable in the presence of timely and effective healthcare (amenable deaths) or public health interventions (preventable deaths).

Data for 2015 and 2016 are presented in this report. 2016 is the latest year for which data is available in Jersey, and this is presented and compared to previous years’ data. However, the latest data for England and Wales published by the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS) is 2015: we compare this to Jersey’s 2015 data.

Avoidable mortality is based on the concept that premature deaths from certain conditions should be rare, and in principle should not occur in the presence of timely and effective health care; avoidable mortality is used as an indicator to measure the contribution of such health care. However, avoidable mortality is not intended to serve as a definitive source of evidence of differences in the effectiveness of healthcare systems between areas. Rather, it was designed to highlight areas of potential weakness in healthcare that could benefit from further in-depth investigation.
