APPG on Ageing and Older People: Health inequalities and older people
The APPG on Ageing and Older people are holding a session on health inequalities on older people. The meeting will look at health inequalities among older people. There are deep inequalities in how different people experience health in later life, and that these inequalities are driven by a range of different factors.
Research has shown that health outcomes are linked with socio-economic factors such as income, geographic location, and race. These inequalities have been further exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The meeting will be chaired by Barbara Keeley MP, with speakers:
- Jeanelle de Gruchy, Deputy Chief Medical Officer and co-lead of the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, DHSC
- Dr Bola Owolabi, Director- Health Inequalities, NHS England
The discussion will include a 30-minute Q&A session. The session takes place from 4:30-5:30pm on 6th March 2023 at Portcullis House in London.
