Health equity indicators for the English NHS

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

This research highlights the breadth of health inequalities between the richest and poorest in England. It finds that the richest fifth of people in England can expect to live at least 12 more years of life in full health than the poorest fifth. Despite their shorter lives, poorer people make more use of NHS services – especially emergency services. It identifies reducing inequality in health care outcomes rather than access to care as a priority for the NHS.
