Health inequalities are differences in health status in our communities. The more deprived the community/group the higher risk of ill health and premature death. Health inequalities are preventable. One way they can be reduced is by multi-team targeted action on the wider determinants of health, such as local environment or access to housing.

The aim of this workshop is to give an introduction to health inequality, and, using examples from practice, consider the impact of local action on the wider determinants of health. The training will aid to empower staff to understand how their own roles have wider impacts on the health agenda.

 Who should attend the conference? ‘The conference has been designed to support the following audience: Elected Members, Chief Executives, DsPH, DsCS, DsASS, members of Health and Wellbeing Boards, Local Authority Managers and Officers (planners, environmental, education, transport, housing etc.) along with CCGs and other health professionals, colleagues from the voluntary and community sector and Local Enterprise Partnerships’
