We also know that certain groups and communities are more likely to experience poorer health outcomes than others. That’s why, as a system, we are committed to helping address some of these underlying causes and ensure that we work towards reducing health inequalities.

We have identified three key areas that we need to focus on in order to prioritise prevention and improve future health outcomes locally. They are:
