We have not seen a health inequalities strategy from the Mayor's Office since 2010. Can the Mayor now give us a time table for a plan to deal with the widening gaps in health outcomes in London before diverting his attention to become PM?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Health Inequalities Strategy (2010) is an evidence-based strategy that sets a direction of travel for London in terms of taking long term action to reduce health inequalities.  I will be refreshing the delivery plan for the Health Inequalities Strategy following my considered response to the publication of the independent London Health Commission inquiry recommendations this autumn.
