Health Equity Audit

  • DH have just published guidance on HEA

  • Initial focus could be on PPF Targets and National Capacity Assumptions eg

    • early antenatal service booking

  • step 2 of health equity audit cycle (equity profile: identify the gap)

    • Involves mapping need

      • Each mapping of need will be different eg hip replacements, ante-natal care, health visitors, primary care services

      • Need proxies required eg age-standardised sex specific CHD mortality < 75 by wards grouped into deprivation quintiles

    • Against service uptake/use

      • Eg service uptake for CABG/PTCA/Angiograms

    • Dimensions: geography, age, sex, ethnicity

  • Interventions then required to address identified service gaps

    • Eg disadvantaged areas deficit for health visitor per 1000 births compared with more affluent areas

  • StHA will be requiring all 6 steps of HEA process to be addressed
