The influence of poverty on children’s health and wellbeing is undeniable. With insight from paediatricians, children and young people, we outline our position on health inequalities to Government, and provide paediatricians with a toolkit to make a difference. It’s time to #ShiftTheDial
Our position - the evidence and policy recommendations for UK
Health inequalities are the systematic differences in health outcomes between different groups of babies, children and young people. They are driven by factors such as ethnicity, income, housing and being looked after by local authorities.
Reducing child health inequalities is a priority for health services in all four nations. We provide a template letter, to which you can add your unique perspective, to help shape better care and outcomes locally.
You can now register to watch our half-day webinar, which took place in mid January, on demand. We explored how paediatricians can support children and families experiencing poverty, design NHS services to address health inequalities and advocate for change in government policy.
