Health inequalities between the North and the rest of England are deeply entrenched and widening. The NHSA recognises the importance of tackling these inequalities and the benefit the excellence of the region’s expertise in this area can bring to its people. The NHSA’s work in health inequalities research is world-leading and has made a significant national impact.
This led to the launch of Health Equity North in April 2023, a virtual institute focused on place-based solutions to public health problems and health inequalities.
