Easy steps to assess your contribution, or your team’s, or partnership’s contribution to addressing health inequalities

Health and Social Care services have an important opportunity to help patients to access support and advice to tackle some of the social issues that may affect their health. This can range from routine opportunities as a clinician, to those which can be taken by a Department or by the wider organisation. This new resource – developed with local teams and service managers – by NHS Ayrshire and Arran can support individuals, teams and partnerships to look – systematically – at what can action they can take. The resource was informed by the Marmot report ‘Working for Health Equity: The Role of Health Professionals’ (UCL Institute of Health Equity, March 2013)
