The Marmot Review 10 years on is being launched today, and is making headlines

Key messages:

  • Over the last decade health inequalities have widened overall, and the amount of time people spend in poor health has increased since 2010.
  • #Marmot2020 confirms an increase in the north/south health gap, where the largest decreases were seen in the most deprived 10% of neighbourhoods in the North East, and the largest increases in the least deprived 10% of neighbourhoods in London.
  • The 10-year on review discounts the theory that the slowdown in life expectancy increase can be solely attributed to severe winters or flu.
