Equal Rights Trust Letter to Newham CCG Regarding Health Access for Roma Communities

Monday, 30 November, 2015

Equal Rights Trust letter to the NHS Newham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) on ensuring equality in access to healthcare for migrant Roma communities. The letter focuses on sharing the findings of consultation meetings which the Trust undertook with members of the migrant Roma community in the Newham area, and to make recommendations for how the Clinical Commissioning Group could better meet its obligations under the Equality Act 2010. The consultations revealed the existence of significant barriers which prevent members of this community from accessing health services on an equal basis with others. Through this letter the Trust seeks to bring these issues to the CCG's attention, given its obligations under the Equality Act 2010.
