Wellbeing and Health Action Portal

The RCPCH social determinants portal in partnership with the Wellbeing and Health Action Movement to unite, inspire and inform healthcare professionals working to create equalities in child health and wellbeing.

We each have a vital role in identifying the social determinants of health and reducing the impacts of health inequalities for every child and young person we see in our clinical practice. By identifying families in need, advocating for child health priorities and connecting to community resources, we can encourage local engagement and empower families to thrive together.

Social determinants activity in the UK

The role of the paediatrician is continually evolving and addressing the impact that social deprivation has on the health and wellbeing of our patients and their families is embedded in our practice – 1 in 4 of the children we treat lives in poverty and it affects every aspect of a child’s life. We are developing a map of the UK to share projects happening in your region, key contacts and local resources with the aim of uniting and informing healthcare professionals working to create equalities in child heath.
