Resource description

There is ongoing discussion about how the government’s planned reorganisation will affect the NHS and therefore health inequalities.

Joan Costa-Font, Cristina Hernández-Quevedo, and Alistair McGuire of LSE Health have found that while health inequalities have decreased in the past decade, often costly interventions in specific areas appear to have had little effect.
