Tackle Health inequalities

There are great inequalities in health care for some people, for example poorer people and those with learning difficulties.

There needs to be more recourse. Information must be in an accessible or easy to read format.

Poverty is a major issue; poorer people do not access services as much. There needs to be a move away from blame culture to look at the reasons why people smoke, drink and eat badly – rather than blame them for doing it.

 

Why the contribution is important

This is important because people are suffering greater ill health and dying younger as a result.
