In early 2021, health and care leaders from across Lancashire & Cumbria committed to form a Health Inequalities Commission to improve health inequalities and make a step change in people’s health. This has now been renamed as the Health Equity Commission (HEC).
The Health Equity Commission will consist of a balanced panel comprising leaders/influencers and independent experts from across Lancashire and Cumbria. It aims to provide local organisations, partners and place-based partnerships the support to make health inequalities and the ‘prevention agenda’ our shared priority and provide them with a clear voice in the region and across the Integrated Care System.
We are establishing the Health Equity Commission during 2021 with the aim of taking action starting in 2022.
