The Health Development Agency has published a self-assessment toolkit for local authorities and primary care trusts to work together to promote healthier communities and reduce health inequalities.

It has been published in partnership with the Local Government Association, the Department of Health, and the Improvement and Development Agency.

The tool aims to help councils evaluate whether there are gaps in their capacity to tackle health inequalities.
