Reducing inequalities in health that exist across Manchester and helping local residents to live longer and healthier lives is one of the main responsibilities of NHS Manchester.
Health Inequalities can be defined as unfair and unnecessary differences in health and health outcomes between groups in society. The reasons for these differences in health are, in many cases avoidable – a consequence of differences from birth in opportunity, in access to services and material resources, as well as differences in the lifestyle choices of individuals.
