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

Monday, 30 November, 2015

Equal Rights Trust letter to Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group on ensuring equality in access to healthcare for migrant Roma communities. The letter focuses on sharing with you the findings of consultation meetings which we have undertaken with members of the migrant Roma community in the Oldham area, and makes 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 the letter the Trust seeks to bring these issues to the Group's attention, given its obligations under the Equality Act 2010.
