Updated analysis of UK primary care workforce data reveals inequalities remain as wide as ever.
A fair distribution of primary care staff is a key building block to reducing health and care inequalities.
In 2021 Dr John Ford (Clinical Lecturer in Public Health, Primary Care Unit) and Claire Nussbaum published a paper showing how primary care workforce inequalities widened between 2015 and 2020 and developed an interactive dashboard showing regional inequalities.
Using the same methods, they have now updated the analysis to included data up to June 2022. The data shows that primary care workforce inequalities remain as wide as ever.
