Bolton Geographies

The map below shows the main geographies used locally: wards, integrated health and social care neighbourhoods, middle super output areas (MSOAs) and lower super output areas (LSOAs). GP practices and the neighbourhood they are affiliated to are shown as points. Use the layer control (top left of the map, looks like a stack of paper) to turn on and off the different geographies.


Neighbourhoods are a local geography built up of Lower Super Output Areas (LSOAS).
