Shropshire Inequalities Plan 2022-2027

Health inequalities are unfair, systematic and avoidable differences in health.

Only around 10% of our health is impacted by the healthcare we receive. To create a society where everybody can thrive, we need all of the right ‘building blocks’ in place: stable jobs, good pay, quality housing and good education.  

Shropshire’s Health and Wellbeing Board (HWBB) requested the development of an Inequalities Plan that recognises the importance of both health inequalities and these missing ‘building blocks’ with inclusion of action being taken to address these.

The Inequalities Plan was agreed at the Health and Wellbeing Board meeting last year. This plan is a working document, and will be updated as the plan develops.
