Equality and diversity

We all use the NHS, whether going to see the GP or a nurse, getting advice from a pharmacist or seeing a dentist.  To make sure everyone is able to get the best out of NHS services we need to understand who our patients are and what their individual needs are so when they need to access treatment they get the right care and have the best possible experience.


We know that health inequalities exist in Wakefield and that some patients have different access, experience and outcomes when they use the NHS.  We want to reduce those differences and remove them entirely where possible.
