Bigger cuts to local authority budgets in the most deprived areas are likely to widen health inequalities

By David Taylor-Robinson

Abstract

Across the country, there are still massive inequalities in life expectancy and health outcomes. Indeed a national ‘health lottery’ is still very much in existence. David Taylor-Robinson examines the recent drastic cuts to local authority budgets and finds that the most deprived areas will be cut the most, and this will exacerbate existing inequalities in health and welfare
