HC Deb 08 March 2004 vol 418 c1332W
Mr. Cousins

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will set out for each(a) primary care trust and (b) strategic health authority area the benchmark national indicators of health inequality, as set out in Annex C of the report on Tackling Health Inequalities. [157048]

Miss Melanie Johnson

The indicators in Annex C of "Tackling Health Inequalities: A Programme for Action" measure national progress on health inequalities. The London Public Health Observatory has produced a Local Basket of Indicators on health inequalities for all primary care trusts, and a copy of their report has been placed in the Library, and is available on the London Health Observatory website at: http://www.lho.org.uk/HIL/Inequalities In Health/Basket Of Indicators/Basket.htm
