Why is it important?

Health inequalities experienced by patients because of their ethnicity have been increasingly highlighted in research and the media, with the implementation and promotion of inclusive strategies becoming a key concern.


Every NHS organisation must adapt their strategies to better serve ethnically diverse populations, making equity and inclusion a pivotal piece in the path to delivering quality care to all patients. All healthcare staff can participate in eradicating healthcare inequalities, making services safe, effective and inclusive to all
