A Bit of Class


People in Tower Hamlets explain how their health is affected by poor conditions.


Looks at the mythical idea that the NHS created equality in health care. Tower Hamlets is chosen as the focus, a predominantly working class area where there is a high incidence of occupational ill-health. Residents speak for themselves, explaining the ways in which their health is affected by housing, work and a generally poor environment. It is social and economic factors like these which perpetuate class differences in health and life expectancy.

Part of a series of films A Picture of Health which challenge the notion that ill-health is a matter of only individual concern and cure. It argues that it concerns not only the medical expert but also society and change must come through political action.
