Health inequalities Linda de Caestecker Director of Public Health NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Who were the women who, day by day, trod the very stones on which my feet now stood?... Child-burdened women who were left without money, without the means or opportunity or physical power to earn it, who had stolen in order to save their lives and that of their

children. if such women become sodden by drink, undermined by drug taking what hope is there of cure by imprisonment? Lytton, C. (1908) Prisons and Prisoners: Some Personal Experiences. London: Virago. With Health in Mind quote from Georgina Brown, In my vision the perspective of primary care should shift away from the traditional paternalistic view of people living in

deprivation to one in which patients are encouraged to value their own lives and develop their potential. The aim would be for all patients to have a purpose each day. Without a 'Purpose,' life is meaningless and people will remain static and poor. Top 10 Tips for Better Health Chief Medical Officers Top Ten Tips

child poverty and can integrate into their daily practice. Limitations of signposting and the importance of routine enquiry which can reduce stigma and increase uptake The importance of positive staff attitudes to ensure engagement. Good parenting can limit effects of poverty Only 19% of children who had lived in persistent poverty and experienced the lowest level of parenting had good achievement .whereas 58% of children who had lived in persistent poverty but with high parenting scores had substantially higher

achievement 73% of children who had not experienced poverty and had high parenting scores had the highest achievements (Kiernan and Mensah 2011) Inadequate housing, homelessness, and family poverty are structural issues but are no less amenable to intervention than the health conditions they engender. The way they differ is in the type of intervention required.
