'Build Back Fairer’ in new Marmot review

The COVID-19 Marmot Review warns England’s excess death rate linked to COVID-19 is the highest in Europe because of failures to control the pandemic alongside the UK’s ‘lost decade’ in health.

Containment measures such as lockdowns and tier systems have also harmed children and young people’s well-being, the new review found.

The review - which follows on from the publication of The Marmot Review 10 Years On in February - calls on the Government to prioritise a well-being economy through a national inequalities strategy.
