The draft London Health Inequalities Strategy This document outlines the main issues that lead to inequalities in the health of different groups of Londoners, and a set of aims for reducing them. It outlines the Mayor’s role, but also how other organisations working in health in London can work together to ensure that all Londoners can benefit from a healthy lifestyle.
The draft strategy was published on the London.gov.uk website on 23 August 2017 for a 14-week public consultation (closing 30 November 2017).
The Report to the Mayor provides a high-level summary and analysis of the issues raised during the consultation of the draft strategy, from both technical stakeholders and members of the public. This allowed the Mayor to have proper regard to the consultation responses when deciding whether to approve the final version of the strategy.
The public responded to the consultation via Talk London online discussion threads and surveys; and via representative polling. The Talk London datasets and emailed responses were analysed by policy area, and compared against insights from the representative polling. This allowed the team to identify any similarities or differences between the views of the general population and the views of the Talk London community.
All datasets on a policy area were brought together in a single thematic summary report, which aimed to show where the balance of opinion lay, as well as highlight areas of disagreement or debate. These reports are provided below, alongside the more detailed qualitative and quantitative research findings and data tables.
