A new study shows that parts Northwood, Northwood Hills and Ruislip have varying levels of health.
New research by the Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC) has produced the most detailed investigation into the features of neighbourhoods that impact health across the whole of Great Britain.
Their interactive map measures each area’s health on a scale of one to 10 – with one being the healthiest and 10 being the least.
The results are a culmination of 18 different factors, which include air quality, how many fast-food restaurants, pubs, gambling facilities and off licenses are nearby and how many GPs, dentists, hospitals and leisure services are accessible.
According CDRC’s interactive map, the heart of Northwood has average general health, scoring between five and six, while north Northwood is healthy, scoring a three.
East Northwood is a little unhealthier, scoring a seven at points, while north-west Northwood also scores a seven.
Northwood Hills is also average in most areas, but most of the east goes as high as a nine on the unhealthy scale.
The centre of Ruislip is also seen as unhealthy, averaging a seven and going as high as nine at points.
The red areas on the map are the least healthy, while the blue are the healthiest.
