Health inequalities have worsened over the past 10 years, and we have seen evidence of wide inequalities in how people access healthcare, and the outcomes they experience as a result.

Trusts have a vital role to play in addressing this systemic challenge, embedding a focus on equitable access to and outcomes from care alongside work to reduce waiting lists and transform services. During our engagement with trusts, we saw the ambition and commitment of trust leaders in narrowing the health inequalities gap for their communities. 

However the challenges are significant, and, alongside our race equality programme, we are now supporting our members to make sense of health inequalities, and embed it as part of 'core business', with resources informed by our research and engagement with trust leaders over the past year.

Our offer

Through a series of resources and events, we will:

  • support trusts to move from analysis to action on health inequalities
  • provide a forum for trust leaders to come together to discuss the challenges and opportunities to address health inequalities
  • offer easily digestible insights on health inequalities to facilitate reflective conversations at board level.
