Bridging The Gap To Cancer Care And Support for Diverse Communities

West Yorkshire & Harrogate Health and Care Partnership

Have your say on how primary care and VCSEs can better connect to tackle cancer inequalities in West Yorkshire and Harrogate

You’re invited to a workshop hosted  by the Cancer Alliance next month (April) to look at how stronger connections between primary care teams and voluntary/community groups/social enterprises (VCSEs) can improve access to services and health and wellbeing support for people from ethnic minority communities who have been/are affected by cancer.

The West Yorkshire & Harrogate Health and Care Partnership (WYH HCP) response to the disproportionate impacts of COVID-19 for different ethnic minority communities has highlighted disparities in access to healthcare and cancer services. Some population groups experience worse outcomes throughout the whole cancer pathway: symptom awareness and health-seeking behaviour is lower, cancer is more likely to be diagnosed at a later stage, and these cancer patients are less likely to access support services.

The workshop will explore these issues from the perspective of primary care and VCSEs, and it’s your opportunity to get involved, share good practice and look at how improvements can be made to improve the patient experience, reduce inequalities and promote better outcomes.
