In this episode of the NMA Podcast we discuss the incredibly important topic of inequalities within children healthcare. Addressing this issue is a priority for all children’s hospital across the UK and in many, many more around the world.
One in three children in the UK lives in relative poverty and research shows a clear and consistent link between child poverty and paediatric morbidity and mortality.
There is no better person to discuss this with than Dr Ian Sinha who is a Consultant Respiratory Paediatrician at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital as well as a Professor within the Division of Child Health at the University of Liverpool.
Ian’s research focuses on paediatric asthma and neonatal lung disease. And he is particularly interested in the impact of social and health inequalities on children.
This is a fantastic onversation with Ian where he explains more about this issue and what measures he and his team are taking to try and make change.
