NW Clinical Senate Health Inequalities Workshop

The NW Clinical Senate held a workshop for its members and colleagues to exchange information of health inequalities across the region. 
Learning about national approaches to identify opportunities for narrowing disparities in service access and health outcomes, the workshop brought together a large cross section of clinical and care professional colleagues to improve mutual understanding of the national Core 20Plus5 programme model, and understanding of which data to consider when providing advice and assurance to services and systems promoting consistency when considering the potential to narrow gaps in health inequalities.
