Description:

Sir Michael Marmot was commissioned to lead a review of health inequalities in England post 2010. The aim of the review was to propose an evidence based strategy for reducing health inequalities in England from 2010.Frontier was commissioned by the Marmot Review to carry out a short piece of work to estimate the cost of health inequalities in England. Given the short time scale for the work (4 weeks), their analysis did not seek to capture the full range of complex changes that would result from decreased health inequalities.Rather their approach was to focus on a small number of well-understood indicators with the aim of identifying the order of magnitude of costs associated with health inequalities. The indicators used in their analysis include:-  life expectancy;- disability free life expectancy;- producitivity losses1;- impact on government receipts and expenditures 1; and- direct costs to the NHS.2
