presented by

Professor Chris Bentley National Support Team for Health Inequalities Department of Health

Date: 3rd December 2008

Time: 14:00 - 15:15 (including Q & A)

Location: Lecture Theatre D004 Ebsworth Building Durham University Queen’s Campus Stockton-on-Tees TS17 6BH

Why is it that if you are born into a disadvantaged area in the United Kingdom you are more likely to die early? This is just one of the many issues facing researchers, the government and clinicians as they deal with the problem of health inequalities. There is now a growing body of evidence looking at the issue of health inequalities both identifying where and what they are, but also why, and how, they can be tackled.

Health inequalities have become a national priority and in light of this the Department of Health has set up the Health Inequalities National Support Team, run by Professor Chris Bentley.

The National Support Team provides tailored packages of support, including access to expertise and resources, to NHS Trusts and their partners, as well as making recommendations of good practice and its implementation. Involving the NST can help further develop and influence national policy and offers the opportunity to ensure examples of best practice and research findings can be recognised at a regional and national level.

Professor Bentley will be visiting the Wolfson Research Institute at Durham University’s Queen’s Campus in Stockton-on-Tees to give a lecture on progress to date as well as the vision for tackling health inequalities in the coming years. There will also be a questions and answers session. The lecture is open to all and free.
