Public Health England, NHSE/I and The King’s Fund are collaborating on a project which seeks to explore the role that allied health professionals (AHPs) have to play with regards to health inequalities.
Health inequalities are the preventable differences in health status between groups, populations or individuals that arise from the unequal distribution of social, environmental and economic conditions within societies, which determine the risk of people getting ill, their ability to prevent sickness, or opportunities to act and access treatment when ill health occurs.
You can help to develop a framework to support AHPs to understand their role in reducing inequalities in health by completing the following short survey. The understanding of the role that paramedics play in addressing health inequalities and the barriers and opportunities that currently exist, will be an important part of this work. The framework needs to be informed by the experiences, insights and ideas of AHPs. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes and your responses will be kept anonymous. https://surveys.phe.org.uk/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=98KM99242
