B41: Health Inequalities and Lifestyle Health Choices

28th June 2006.

Inevitably, these two factors coincide, with the most deprived wards in the UK aligning with the poorest health. Central Government have recognised that health and health inequalities are a major concern centrally, regionally and locally. This CLES bulletin seeks to investigate these policies in greater detail and to look at some of the more local interventions being developed across England to tackle health inequalities.
