Health inequalities

Health inequalities

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown into sharp focus the issue of health inequalities in the UK and exposed the consequences of a long-standing failure to tackle this deep rooted and multi-faceted problem. 

Since June, we have been engaging with our members on this issue and how to shift the needle. Our report, Health Inequalities: Time to Act, summaries our engagement and what members have identified as potential ways forward.
