Unpicking the inequalities in the elective backlogs in England

The King's Fund
Year of publication
As part of new research project that explores how NHS providers and integrated care systems (ICSs) are approaching inclusive recovery, we have found that, in 2022, people in the most deprived areas were twice as likely to be waiting more than a year for elective care compared to people in the least deprived areas. This paper explores three big questions health and care leaders should be asking themselves and their teams about inequalities in their elective backlog: how are we measuring inequalities and why, do we know why inequalities exist, and how will we know if things are improving?
