In 2021, NHS England established the National Healthcare Inequalities Improvement, a framework that outlined their plan for delivering exceptional quality healthcare for all. Following this, the Health and Care Act 2022 introduced new measures to tackle inequalities through joining up NHS, social care and public health services at a local level. Although these plans are steps in the right direction, with health disparities across the country remaining prevalent, it is now more essential than ever to ensure that people from all backgrounds have access to high quality and effective care. Through sharing best practice, those working to narrow health inequalities can build upon their existing success and develop new strategies to improve services, tackle barriers to access, and better engage with local communities.

  • There is an almost 19-year gap healthy life expectancy between the most and least deprived areas in England, according to the Health Foundation, 2023
  • Almost a third of children in the UK currently live in poverty and are at risk of experiencing poorer health outcomes, states a 2023 report from NHS Providers
  • Maternal mortality for Black women is currently almost four times higher than for White women, according to a 2023 House of Commons report
