About the Author

Helen Roberts is a medical sociologist at UCL Institute of Child Health, London and an Honorary Research Fellow with Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. She set up and ran the Child Health Research and Policy Unit at City University London, spent a decade running R&D with Barnardo's, is a non-executive director of NICE and a member of research committees in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Her publications span the distance between the academic and the popular, from systematic reviewing in social science and policy, through studies on inequality, to recording the voices of those who experience its effects, from residents of Glasgow housing estates to children talking about safety and risk.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to assist me on my Health Visiting course. It has been invaluable in contributing to my assignments and understanding about what I can do within my practice to work towards reducing health inequalities within the communities I am based in. The format is clear, concise and well put together, even for someone with dyslexia I found it extremely easy to follow and understand. Helen Roberts knows her stuff, I highly recommend this for health professionals working with children and in areas where inequalities in child health are prevalent.

This is simply a great book.

Dr Roberts has managed to bring together many diverse factors that impact on children and their families.

The straightforward and accessible way the book is written makes it a pleasure to read.
