Access to health care for ethnic minority population, A Szczepura

Access to health care for ethnic minority population, A Szczepura This paper reviews the research evidence on access to health care by ethnic minority populations, and discusses what might need to be done to improve access to services. Research on the process of care, and the quality of care received, is considered as well as studies examining uptake of services.

Examples presented include a new UK population cancer screening programme.
