Inequalities Everyone in society should have the opportunity to make healthy choices, live healthy lives and access high quality health and social care services
There are stark differences in health outcomes across the UK – with a gap of almost 19 years in healthy life expectancy between the most and least deprived areas in England. Inequalities in power, money and resources at local and national levels can make people’s daily lives more challenging. In turn, this can make people more vulnerable to poor health.
