Lord Victor Adebowale CBE
Distinguished Lecture Series - Inequality, Fairness and Power
The inverse care law describes the fact that the people with greatest need for health care are least likely to receive it. This goes against most people's views about fairness - a view that forms the basis for the existence of the NHS. In this lecture, Victor will consider the relationship between social-economic inequalities, health and power what this all means for the future of the National Health Service.
