London Health Inequalities Network
The London Health Inequalities Network (LHIN) (formerly the London’s Spearhead PCTs Network) was established to provide a supportive environment for Directors of Public Health
(or representatives) from London’s most deprived areas to share knowledge, best practice and resources to help reduce health inequalities in the 11 former ‘Spearhead’ areas.
The Network commissioned two consultancies under the following themes:
- Embedding health inequalities within service review and decommissioning (Authored by Partnership Solutions)
- Review of local employment, housing and income interventions to reduce health inequalities in the 11 former Spearhead boroughs (Authored by Inukshuk)
Promoting Synergy Improving Health
Embedding Health Inequalities Considerations in the Decommissioning Process
The following documents were produced in response to a growing need to review, re-commission and / or decommission NHS services in response to current and emerging financial
pressures; and the identified need for resources to support embedding health inequalities consideration within this process. A review of available tools was commissioned with
the aim of producing a practical toolkit for commissioners and other stakeholders.
In a changing environment the principles outlined can be adapted and applied to the commissioning and service review process in its entirety.
A review of local actions in the former London Spearhead boroughs to reduce health inequalities through key social determinants: employment, housing, & income
LHIN commissioned a study of how employment, housing and income interventions are being used in the 11 boroughs to reduce health inequalities. The aims of this work are to
both share good practices and lessons learned, and make recommendations for work at local, multi-area / network-wide and regional levels.
