    1. Uptake of COVID and flu vaccination has increased significantly across all groups, but inequality has also widened, particularly by deprivation and ethnicity. Systems and providers were asked to take a culturally competent approach to increasing vaccination uptake in groups that had a lower uptake than the overall average areas as of March 2021.

    1. Preventative programmes and proactive health management for groups at greatest risk of poor health outcomes should be accelerated, as set out in main planning guidance, including:
    • Targeting long-term condition diagnosis and management
    • Annual health checks for people with severe mental illness (SMI) and learning disabilities
    1. In maternity care, implementing Continuity of maternity carers for at least 35% of women with the proportion of Black and Asian women and those from the most deprived neighbourhoods.
