Last month Professor Sir Michael Marmot published the Marmot review, 10 years on, accompanied by a case study evaluating the impact of devolution on health inequalities within Greater Manchester.

The review found that the gap between life expectancy between rich and poor areas is increasing, as a result of persistent health inequalities. These health inequalities are closely linked to where we live, work and play, which have been impacted by the cuts to public spending. The most deprived areas have seen the biggest decrease in public spending from the government.
