Multi-morbidity report for 2022 published

18 May 2023

The multi-morbidity report 2022 has been published by Public Health Intelligence.

Data for this report is taken from primary care (GPs), who maintain disease registers for 12 long-term conditions, as set out in the Jersey Quality Improvement Framework (JQIF).

Morbidities are long-term health conditions and multi-morbidity is when a person suffers from two or more morbidities. 

Studies show that people with multi-morbidity typically suffer a lower quality of life, have more frequent and lengthy hospital admissions, and may be more likely to die prematurely than those who do not have multi-morbidity. 

The report shows the burden of multi-morbidity experienced by Jersey’s population. 

The report shows that at the end of 2022: 

  • The most common condition was hypertension, with over 17,600 sufferers 
  • 13,375 people had two or more long-term conditions (multi-morbidity) 
  •  Multi-morbidity becomes more common with age, and by age 85 over half of the population are living with multi-morbidity 
  •  Hypertension and obesity were the most commonly co-occurring morbidities, being present in 4,380 people
  •  The most commonly occurring triad of conditions was hypertension, obesity and diabetes
