Health inequalities

We need to address financial inequities and health inequalities, with a focus on people or groups suffering the poorest health outcomes.

To do this, we plan to:

  • Rebalance system resources in order to reduce health inequalities
  • Review public health outcome measures to address health inequalities (smoking, obesity, alcohol, air pollution, antimicrobial resistance)
  • Invest in prevention to address health inequalities and reduce future growth in emergency demand.
