Health Inequalities

Health inequalities is a growing issue and a challenge for the health service in the context of growing demand and needs. Partners have started to put together local intelligence and tools to support you as a health professional in your understanding and commissioning decisions.

On this site you can find:

  • Information on health inequalities in Lambeth and the epidemiological profile.
  •  Tools to diagnose and measure health inequalities to ensure that health inequalities are addressed as part of commissioning.
  •  Papers and reports of studies on health inequalities in Lambeth using locally available data.
  •  The proceedings of the Lambeth  Health inequalities conference held on 28th February 2012.

The conference theme was ‘making a difference, together’. In addition to presentations delivered at the conference from some of the leads in the field of health inequalities, there were workshops on some of the key priorities facing Lambeth. The conference concluded with a discussion session aimed at translating some of the ideas into commissioning intentions so that the end result will be a series of proposed interventions designed to make real changes in health and health outcomes.  The conference  was a great opportunity for different front line workers to meet colleagues in the academic Departments of Primary Care (KCL and LSBU), Lambeth Public Health, Lambeth Council and Lambeth Local Involvement Network (LINk), and pool our knowledge and effort to tackle health inequalities.  For additional information please click here
