Key Neighbourhoods

The 21 Health and Well-Being Key Neighbourhoods in Surrey

Surrey’s Health and Well-being Strategy was refreshed in 2022 to include a particular focus on certain geographic areas of the county which experience the poorest health outcomes in Surrey. These areas were selected on the basis of the Overall deprivation score established in the English deprivation indices 2019.

The “Key Neighbourhoods” for especial prioritisation are the wards which included the most deprived “pockets” within the county. These small areas are called Lower Super Output Areas (‘LSOAs’).

Given that the most sharply focused areas of need are these LSOAs, this page provides insight summaries of each small area. There are two forms of report included: (1) an ‘easy read’ infographic two page summary of key information, and (2) a much longer and more comprehensive insight report. Each report can be accessed from the hyperlink in the table below. Similar resources have also been produced for the county as a whole and for each of the districts and boroughs in Surrey.

The infographic pages can also be viewed online in the screen beneath. At the bottom of this page is a mapping tool which highlights the locations of the Key LSOAs across Surrey.

Note that one of these areas (Woking 004F) has been substantially affected by redevelopment as part of the Sheerwater Regeneration Project, and consequently has a significantly reduced number of residents compared to 2019 (when the English Deprivation Indices were created). This LSOA now no longer exists for the purposes of new data releases, and has been combined following the 2021 Census with an adjoining LSOA (Woking 004C) to form a new geographic area called Woking 004G. New data releases and reports will therefore refer to Woking 004G.
