BMJ Blog: Collecting data is just the start – Josie O’Heney

Published: 07 Feb 2022

“…one day we won’t be reporting that the colour of your skin impacts your risk of dying at what should be one of the happiest times of your life.”

Clinical fellow Dr Josie O’Heney explores health inequalities in maternity in her blog: collecting data is just the start. The blog, written for the BMJ Leader series, is one of five penned by clinical fellows  on secondments at NHS England and NHS Improvement and Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP).

Each one explores the ‘5’ focus areas of the CORE20PLUS5 approach, the links between health inequalities and the invaluable contribution of leadership to narrowing the life expectancy inequality gap.
