Prof Danny Dorling in the New Statesman

An article co-authored by Prof Danny Dorling, Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography and Professorial Fellow at St Peter's, has been published in this week's New Statesman.

Prof Dorling, whose work concerns issues of housing, health, employment, education and poverty, writes with NHS GP and Health Advisor, Dr Lucinda Hiam, about the state of UK health under Prime Ministers David Cameron and Theresa May.
