Southampton is a vibrant, historic waterfront city with a diverse population, a strong growing economy and high quality health and care services.

Despite this, health and wellbeing outcomes are not as good for some of our residents as they could be. Southampton is ranked the 55th most deprived local authority area in England and 13% of neighbourhoods in the city fall within the 10% most deprived nationally.

In Southampton, people living in the most deprived areas of the city have poorer outcomes than those living in the least deprived areas of the city. This means that the right of our residents to the highest standard of health and wellbeing is not being enjoyed equally across Southampton.

We work collectively across NHS organisations, Southampton City Council and voluntary organisations to tackle these challenges together, and have been working like this for a number of years.
