Resources to help reduce health inequalities

NHS England has produced some Equality and Health Inequality RightCare Packs, which aim to support health and care systems to design and deliver services that reduce inequalities in access to health services and health outcomes for their diverse local populations.

The information contained in each pack is specific to each local health system and should be used to support local discussions and inform a more in-depth analysis. Each tailored pack considers measures of health inequality that aim to support health systems identify areas of improvement in promoting equality and reducing health inequalities.

By using these packs, together with other NHS RightCare packs and local intelligence, health systems will be able to ensure plans focus on those opportunities which have the potential to provide the biggest improvements in health outcomes and resource allocations and the biggest reductions in health inequalities.

The packs have been developed in partnership with Professors Chris Bentley (Sheffield Hallam University) and Richard Cookson (York University) and a number of Clinical Commissioning Groups using the NHS RightCare methodology.
