The FAIRSTEPS study provides a evidence informed framework to guide the commission, design and delivery of interventions in primary care to address health inequities. In addition it provides a set of practical examples, prioritised by practitioners and patients of interventions that have been tried and tested. 

The resulting framework is relevant for providers and commissioners of education and training and primary care services. 

This user guidance provides the opportunity for people to try out the FAIRSTEPS framework in practice. We are very happy to receive any feedback on its practical use. Please e-mail

Further dissemination of the main study is in progress.
