ASH response to NHS England and NHS Improvement consultation on CORE20PLUS5

In November 2021, ASH responded to NHS England and Improvement’s consultation on the CORE20PLUS5 approach to addressing inequalities. Whilst broadly welcoming the overall model, ASH’s response highlighted the importance and commonality of smoking as a determinant of the five clinical health inequality priorities the CORE20PLUS5 model specifically seeks to address, and the need for more explicit direction to ICSs on the need to address smoking in order to reduce health inequalities locally and across the country. The submission was written by Nathan Davies, Specialty Registrar in Public Health.
