Health Professionals

Those in the health sector regularly bear witness to, and must deal with, the effects of the social determinants of health on people.

The health care system and those working within it have an important and often under-utilised role in reducing health inequalities through action on the social determinants of health. The health workforce are well placed to initiate and develop services that take into account, and attempt to improve, the wider social context for patients and staff. (UCL Institute of Health Equity, 2013)
