Health in hard times: austerity and health inequalities
A new book by Fuse Professor Clare Bambra shows how austerity has impacted on health and wellbeing in the UK and explores its repercussions for social inequalities in health.
The result of five years research, the book draws on a case study of Stockton-on-Tees in North East England, home to some of the starkest health divides. By placing individual and local experiences in the context of national budget cuts and welfare reforms, it provides a holistic perspective on countrywide inequalities. This is an important book for anyone seeking to understand one of today’s most significant determinants of health.
