The role of the NHS in addressing health inequalities

NHS England and NHS Improvement are working with the Health Foundation to develop a UK-wide NHS Anchors Learning Network.  When operating as an "anchor", NHS organisations can use the way they employ staff, purchase goods, use their estate and engage with local communities, to proactively improve local socio-economic conditions and tackle the underlying drivers of poor health, including building a healthy and sustainable post-COVID-19 recovery.  The Anchors Learning Network will bring organisations together to share learning, collaborate on challenges and jointly increase understanding and expertise in impact measurement.
