Answer for London Health Inequality Strategy

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My health team will be working with partners in the newly established health system to develop and secure commitment to a refreshed action plan for the Health Inequalities Strategy. The aim is for this to be published in 2014.

I have recently appointed Dame Ruth Carnall, former chief executive of NHS London, to offer high-level, specialist advice to support my aim of ensuring the NHS in London provides effective services to deal with major health inequalities.
