Addressing inequalities (across communities and resources)

The End of Life Care Strategy (2008) includes a commitment to ensure equitable access to excellent end-of-life care for all, regardless of age, race, faith, gender, mental capacity, disease or disability.  

However, there is recognised variability in the quality of care, especially among those with non-cancer diagnoses and people from minority groups, including black and ethnic minority and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups. 

Our research investigates the experience of care and specific needs of those from minority and underserved groups and how these might be better supported in end-of-life care.
