As the impacts of austerity politics continue to reverberate, Health in hard times explores their repercussions for social inequalities in health. Drawing on five years of research, it puts stories from Stockton-on-Tees, home to some of the starkest health divides, in the wider context of budget cuts and welfare reforms. The result is an important assessment of stark inequalities in wellbeing.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The findings of this excellent research team regarding the political and economic impacts in the North East will chime with practitioners in other social contexts." Paul Norman, University of Leeds
"The combination of an interdisciplinary lens and quantitative and qualitative data creates a much needed but shocking depiction of the impacts of austerity on social and health inequalities at a local level. The book illuminates how austerity as a political discourse is being used to justify deeply pernicious and deliberate shredding of the public welfare fabric." Jennie Popay, Lancaster University
