Cuts to children services threaten health inequality

17th February 2012

A warning from government health adviser Sir Michael Marmot that cuts to children services and increased taxes for poorer families threaten to increase health inequality have been backed by campaign groups.

The adviser’s latest findings on health inequality reveal that just 59% of children achieved a good level of development by the age of five in 2011. Children’s campaign group 4Children said the figures from Sir Michael showed why it remained crucial that "children and families must be an avowed priority, both nationally and locally, in this time of austerity".
