COVID-19 has shone a harsh light on health inequalities that persist in our society. With that, addressing healthcare inequalities has moved firmly up the priority list of leaders in the NHS, the wider healthcare sector, the community and in business.
In March 2022, the Royal Society of Medicine launched a multi-year ‘Tackling Inequalities' programme. The inaugural Tackling Inequalities conference, in partnership with NHS England focused on Core20PLUS5, an approach designed to support Integrated Care Systems to drive targeted action in healthcare inequalities improvement.
