Blenheim highlight ’shameful health inequalities’ in annual report

Blenheim have pledged in their 2014 annual report to campaign for best practice and positive change to address the many health inequalities in the alcohol and substance misuse field. These inequalities include;

  • 97% of people with hepatitis C go untreated despite the fact that there is a cure available for this potentially life threatening virus.
  • Despite a 32% rise in heroin and opiate deaths, naloxone availability in England is highly variable with little sense of Government urgency.
