This latest edition of the RBI not only outlines the continuing scale of the challenge facing the UK, but is very much intended to act as a blueprint to help the new Government navigate the issue over the coming years to ensure that what action it takes can have the maximum positive impact where and how it is most needed. The recommendations form a self-fulfilling virtuous cycle, where investment in economic infrastructure will positively effect health outcomes, while improving health outcomes will, in turn, positively effect economic output.

The findings in wave 6 of the RBI reveal that the current cost of living crisis presents a real danger of widening the existing inequalities found between and within different parts of the UK.
