Description:

The DHSSPS has developed a programme of work to provide a firm foundation to address health and social care inequality including a detailed monitoring system, the Health and Social Care Inequalities Monitoring System (HSCIMS), to establish the nature and extent of health inequality in Northern Ireland. Currently, the principal measures of health inequalities are life expectancy and infant mortality underpinned by specific measures relating to the gap between the most deprived and the population as a whole, and to mortality from the ‘big killers’ of circulatory diseases, such as heart disease and stroke, as well as cancers. The regional HSCIMS produces regular annual updates on the extent of inequality experienced by those living in the 20% most deprived areas and that experienced by those living in rural areas when compared with the regional average and monitors these changes over time across a range of mortality, morbidity, accessibility and service utilisation indicators. This information is a key component used to provide evidence to assess the effectiveness of key departmental programmes designed to reduce health inequalities.
