Cross Party Group on Health Inequalities:
Topic: Responses to the inverse care law in Scotland over the last 20 years
The next meeting of the group will take place on Monday the 6th December at 6pm online via Zoom and will be chaired by Paul O’Kane MSP.
At the meeting we will hear from:
Dr David Blane, Clinical Research Fellow in General Practice & Primary Care, Institute of Health & Wellbeing, University of Glasgow
Dr David Blane will talk about the study he is leading on Responses to the inverse care law in Scotland over the last 20 years
The project aims to:
- understand how the inverse care law has manifested in Scotland over the past 20 years in primary health care
- map out the range of interventions and approaches (at national, regional and local levels) that have been deployed to tackle the inverse care law in Scotland, and the rationale behind them
- review the evidence of the impact and sustainability of these interventions and approaches, including the role of the Deep End GP project in Scotland
- synthesise what has worked and what has not worked in reducing the inverse care law in Scotland, and to make recommendations for future directions.
