Key Findings

Our Autumn 2023 issue of Connected Voice is all about health equity. We hear from a number of organisations working across the region including Eating Distress North East, RISE and Edberts House, all of whom are addressing the issue of health inequity in their own unique ways.

In a guest piece, Chief Executive of Healthworks Paul Court discusses how understanding the root causes of health inequalities is essential to tackle the issue itself, while Debra Lagun from our Support and Development team introduces our new interactive training course, which is designed to do just that.

We also hear from our Advocacy team about the key role that independent advocates play in the fight for health equity, and our newly established Health Equity team give us an update on their important inclusion-based projects.

Our Chief Executive Lisa Goodwin and Health Equity and Involvement Manager Vicki Harris also take us through the changing landscape of health and care in the UK following the introduction of the Health and Care Act 2022.
