    At the edge of credibility to deliver meaningful training to 100,000 right across England for £750k. Take out management salaries/oncosts and you are probably left with £3-4 per head for the training - even with volunteers and "digital champions" doing the work, I think this is for headlines, not effect and has precious little chance of reducing health inequalities.
