Concerning Health Matters: Voices from 3 Neighbourhood Renewal Strategy areas in Bolton

Abstract

This document reports the findings from a health needs assessment that was carried out in three of the most deprived areas of Bolton as a means to better understanding the reasons for the continuing health inequalities in the borough. The views, understandings, aspirations and expectations of heath and health services of over 700 residents from the Breightmet, Tonge with the Haulgh and Rumworth NRS areas were collected using a guided questionnaire, and their voices are captured in the final report. This collective voice sheds new light on health behaviours and therefore health outcomes in those areas, and the report is therefore essential reading for anyone who is involved or tasked with helping to close the health gap in Bolton.
