The Marmot Review (2010) made a range of recommendations to reduce health inequalities in England.

Building on the Review, the UCL Institute of Health Equity has produced 4 papers which include evidence, and examples of practical action that can be taken at a local level to reduce health inequalities. They are designed for people working in local services, particularly:

  • directors of public health and public health teams
  • people working in local authorities services that may influence health and wellbeing, such as planning
  • health and wellbeing boards

These practice resources build on a series of papers published in 2014 to support local action on health inequalities.

The chart shows key indicators of the social determinants of health, health outcomes and social inequality that broadly correspond to the policy recommendations proposed in ‘Fair Society, Healthy Lives’.
