Health inequalities in London

Public Health England has published an in-depth report looking at health inequalities within London and highlighting significant differences in health outcomes between London and the rest of the country.

The report shows, for example, that immunisation uptake in London is the lowest in the country and is falling, while rates of childhood obesity in London are higher than anywhere else in the country. The report shows that social, geographical and biological differences may result in people who are worse off experiencing poorer health and shorter lives.
