BME patients less likely to report positive experiences

  • Comment

Patients from a BME background are less likely to report a positive experiences of the NHS than those from a white British background, according to a study.

Findings were based on National Patient Survey data of adult inpatients, emergency departments, primary care services and community mental health patient surveys.

Patients from ‘Asian and Chinese/other’ groups and those from black backgrounds were also less likely to give positive responses.

BME groups tended to be less positive about questions relating to ‘access and waiting’ or to ‘better information and more choice’.
