Let's Talk Inequality - Healthwatch response

Healthwatch responds to the Islington Council's call for evidence, sharing examples of inequality that we have come across in our recent work.

Summary

Examples of inequality:

  1. Lack of transparency in eligibility criteria for essential services
  2. Lack of awareness of services that are not well promoted in the community
  3. 'Digital by default' models of access to essential services
  4. Lack of access to NHS dentistry

Examples of support that residents value:

  1. Services that are holistic and responsive.
  2. Community services that provide a space where vulnerable residents feel welcome
