Video Introduction

This video is adapted from 10.3390/gidisord1020020

The video reviews access to healthcare by patients with inflammatory bowel disease [1][2][3][4][5], coeliac disease [7] and achalasia [6]. People from South Asia, Afro-Caribbean and Eastern European backgrounds are less likely to receive appropriate care. Organisations responsible for ensuring equitable care, such as NHS Trusts, Health and Wellbeing Boards, Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS Improvement, the Care Quality Commission and the Equality and Human Rights Commission have taken no actions to address such disparate care [8]. There is unlikely to be any change until management structures take ownership of these issues. This will only be achieved if there is a change in policy and NHS Trusts are required to provide annual reports, supported by statistics, on access to health care for specific diseases by minority communities. The process should be overseen by an independent commissioner and executive and non-executive officers should be held legally responsible for failures.
