star this property answer text <p>The <em>NHS Five Year Forward View</em> (2014) sets out the ambition to improve the nation’s health and reduce inequalities, including among the most vulnerable groups. Through the inequality duties introduced through the 2012 Health and Social Care Act, local areas must have regard to inequalities in access to, and the outcomes from, National Health Service services in developing their plans. Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), health and wellbeing boards and the rest of the local health system work together to undertake joint strategic needs assessments of local health needs and develop strategic plans, working with key stakeholders to deliver outcomes and reduce health inequalities. <strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p>All CCGs are provided with local and national data from Public Health England and NHS England to support the planning and commissioning process. These tools help to identify differences in access to services and health outcomes across the local population, including among vulnerable groups. For example, on-line resources available to local areas include Commissioning for Value Packs, the NHS Atlas of Variation in Healthcare, and the Marmot indicator local authority profiles.</p><p> </p><p>Guidance on addressing the health needs of vulnerable groups including Gypsies and Travellers was developed under the DH-sponsored inclusion health programme. It included <em>Inclusion of Gypsy Traveller health needs in Joint Strategic Needs Assessments: A review</em>, a report compiled by Friends, Families and Travellers (2015), <em>Standards for commissioners and service providers</em>, by the Faculty for Homeless and Inclusion Health (2013) and <em>Improving access to health care for Gypsies and Travellers, homeless people and sex workers</em>, by Royal College of General Practitioners (2013). Copies of these documents are attached. NHS England published guidance for the service on the rights of vulnerable groups in registering with GPs to reduce the risk of exacerbating health inequalities for vulnerable groups, <em>Patient Registration: Standard Operating Principles for Primary Medical Care (General Practice)</em>, NHS England, 2015. A copy has been placed in the library.</p><p> </p>
