Reports a postal survey of NHS staff in six Districts in the NorthWestern Region. There were 3,525 replies, from staff in five mainoccupational groups, with clear social gradients in respect of healthstatus, smoking and exercise, but a more complex picture in respect ofdiet, stress and uptake of preventative services. There were nosignificant differences in respect of alchohol consumption. Previousresearch showed social class differences in mortality of NHS staff thisstudy documents aspects of lifestyle consistent with that. Although theimportance of socioeconomic circumstances and social support should notbe disregarded, the survey results emphasize the need for NHS managersto reduce the inequality in health experienced by NHS staff, workingwith ancillary staff as a priority.
