"What I've chosen to do is collect all this data to help people. It's a tool. It's absolutely fascinating."

On Wednesday 21st November 2012 Chief Medical Officer Professor Dame Sally Davies presented her first Annual Report, containing up-to-date information about the state of health of England's population in easy-to-read graphics. We transformed 500 spreadsheets of information into 500 maps, graphs and charts, creating a unique, data-specific batch processing platform.

The CMO's Annual Report 2012 is published by Williams Lea using data generated by the statisticians at the Department of Health.
