This paper uses the example of health service activity in part of a major UK conurbation to explore the idea of a 'health dividend' and 'good corporate citizenship'. Because of the scale of resources devoted to healthcare, healthcare providers have a duty to maximise the economic and social as well as health impact of their activities and to realise a health dividend for local communities. The paper draws on links between realising a 'health dividend' and realising a 'peace dividend' from arms conversion and explores some of the tensions this creates, especially in an area characterised by significant social inequalities and deprivation.
