BME Health Inequalities

BME groups generally have less access to high-quality care along with poorer health and worse health outcomes than the overall population.

BME communities are more likely to have co-morbilities i.e. a combination of long term health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, COPD etc.

COVID-19 has shone a spotlight on health inequalities that have existed for several decades.
