This course explores health inequalities; what they are and why they matter to patients, communities and practitioners. The first module offers an introduction to health inequalities which will be relevant to all practitioners in the United Kingdom, as well as an overview of NHS England and Improvement’s Health Inequalities Improvement Programme. In the module on leadership we examine a number of approaches to tackling health inequalities at various levels of influence and with a focus on practical actions to make a difference.

The course is FREE to RCGP members and other healthcare professionals in the UK.

An educational grant was received from NHS England and Improvement (NHSEI) for the production of the course.  Editorial and content decisions were made solely by the RCGP.
