Wales' life expectancy inequality 'not good enough'

Tackling health inequalities is a priority for Wales' new chief medical officer.

Dr Frank Atherton said he wanted to make sure everyone in Wales has the same opportunities.

A Public Health Wales report said more needs to be done to tackle inequalities which lead to people living shorter lives in poorer parts of Wales.

Dr Atherton took up the post on 1 August, replacing Dr Ruth Hussey who is retiring.
