North Wales

North Wales

North Wales covers approximately 2,500 square miles and is made of six counties; Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham. 

The population of North Wales is currently 694,000 but is predicted to grow to 731,500 by 2033.

The area has an ageing population with a higher proportion of people aged 55 years and over and a lower proportion aged between 15 and 34 years, compared to Wales as a whole.

Just over 20% (20.2%) of the resident population is aged 65 and over and this is predicted to grow by 60% by 2033.

One fifth of the people who live within the most deprived areas in Wales are located in North Wales. Despite this, the health of the population in North Wales is generally better than, or similar to, the Wales average.

There is, however, a widening in inequalities in healthy life expectancy between the most and least deprived.

The Public Health Team in North Wales work closely with Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board and local authority partners and focus their work on prevention, early intervention and the promotion of health and wellbeing from birth, throughout the life course and during older age.
