Changing the way we work

If we are going to reduce health inequalities in Fife, we have to work differently. We have established a 3 themes approach, based on evidence about ways of working most likely to reduce health inequalities.

We have developed a health inequalities checklist based on the 3 themes, to help your organisation or team check if you are working in ways most likely to reduce health inequalities.

The themes are relevant to organisations and groups across Fife – council services, third sector organisations, the NHS, Health and Social Care Partnership, emergency services, further and higher education, business and government. If we are to reduce health inequalities in Fife, more organisations and groups must apply the 3 themes to planning and delivering work across Fife.
