Healthwatch Assembly: Health Inequalities in Wandsworth

Health inequalities are known as unfair and avoidable differences in health and wellbeing and access to health and care. This is across a number of local community social and population groups. To find out more about health inequalities in Wandsworth you can read the report by the Director of Public Health in Wandsworth: https://www.datawand.info/director-of-public-health-annual-report/.

There are so many aspects to look health inequalities, at our event you will then get a chance to preview some of the practical issues/solutions to health inequalities including digital health and care appointments, community information and communications and mental health.

If you use Wandsworth health and care services, join us online to share your ideas, questions and experiences within and between community groups.
