Chief Medical Officer’s First Annual Report (Department of Health)


The Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies’s first annual epidemiology and surveillance report offers a comprehensive review of England’s public health.

A major feature of this report (volume one) is the use of cartograms to emphasise geographical differences. Cartograms aid visualisation by displaying data in the form of maps of England in which the size of a particular area is adjusted to reflect the size of its population and rates of mortality, morbidity and/or wellbeing.

This massive report is divided into chapters for more convenient access to specific sections of the report.

The second volume of the Chief Medical Officer’s annual report was published in March 2013. Volume Two covers infections and infectious diseases.
