About this event

Cultural Communities and Health Inequalities

Increasing access to healthcare and improving communication in the community for patients from different cultures

Connect Health “Change” has developed a series of webinars to make and embed transformation in healthcare. Aimed at system leaders and clinicians across the NHS, the webinars provide practical solutions to the challenging issues we are all grappling with.

View our past webinars, agendas, speakers and recordings here.

We are pulling together a webinar on 14 July at which patients, third sector, change experts, patient representatives and academics will debate how to increase access to healthcare and improving communication for patients from different cultures.

The webinar will aim to cover

  • For those delivering services in the heart of the community, how can we bring about appropriate outcome measurements for people from different cultures
  • For the third sector, how do we work better in partnership for patients from BAME communities
  • For service providers, how do we adapt physio, pain management and psychology services for different cultures
  • For patients, how do we give them a voice to speak about their experiences
  • For commissioners, how do we make sure cultural issues are high on commissioners priorities and how do we improve access to healthcare
  • Health outcomes in BAME communities – how do we better understand inequalities eg taking into account deprivation, housing, education, poor health, long-Covid
