Thought I'd take the opportunity to highlight CHEX's new policy briefing, “Tackling Scotland's health inequalities: A time for radical change?”, which brings together some recent policy statements and research findings around health inequalities in Scotland, including recent reports from Audit Scotland and Scotland's Chief Medical Officer. These provide stark reading for anyone concerned with improving the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged communities.
Within the documents there is a call for radical change in how Scotland tackles health inequalities. CHEX welcomes and supports this call for change together with greater recognition and backing for the contribution that community-led health approaches can bring.
