How are we addressing social class issues
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is carrying out a range of work to tackle inequality as a result of income inequality, poverty and social issues.
These include -
- Monitoring the impact of the recession and welfare reform on health
- Increasing referrals to employability and money advice services
- The Healthier, Wealthier Children project which is exploring ways of tackling child poverty at local level
- Measuring the health gap so that we know that specific programmes of work are making the gap better or worse
Local health and social care partnerships mean that staff work together to give people support with health and social issues to reduce health inequality
