In comparison with other rural areas the remoter rural districts of England and Wales tend to have higher and more rapidly increasing mortality rates. This may be related to their recent history of population decline and the differential migration associated with it. Such rural areas therefore tend to face a dual problem of relatively high need for health services but low levels of access to them.
