Speaking at her party’s annual conference in Brighton, Debbie Abrahams said government policies outside the areas traditionally thought of as “health policy” still had an effect on health.

She said cuts were having a significant impact on health of the poorest in society.

“We can’t just focus on lifestyle – it has to be about social structures,” she told a fringe meeting organised by the 2020health think-tank.
