Along with a more holistic focus on overall population health, wellness and prevention has come an increasing recognition of inequalities in outcomes, experience and access. The covid-19 pandemic has further highlighted this challenge by showing areas of social deprivation and ethnic minority groups are more greatly impacted. 

Equally, the uptake of digital solutions during the pandemic has exacerbated another divide, potentially excluding those without access to digital services or the technical capability to utilise them.
