A s I said in previous answers, I believe that we need to take a holistic approach—and yes, we need to work very closely with people who are suffering health inequalities. The Scottish child payment, which I referenced earlier, is one such measure. It puts money directly into people’s hands to allow them to make such decisions, which is incredibly important.

In the wider public health sphere, we work closely with third sector colleagues and partners to ensure that the support that communities across Scotland get is really helpful with regard to healthy eating, as well as for wellbeing and exercise, which tie in with and are important aspects of that approach.
