Abstract: This article considers the background to one of the projects in the UK Economic and Social Research Council’s Public Services Programme: a major; three-year investigation of how health inequalities are being framed for intervention at a local level in post-devolution England, Scotland and Wales. A particular interest is in the difference that performance assessment makes as it engages to a greater or lesser extent with health inequalities.
