BAME Health Matters

We recognise that some health conditions are more prevalent in Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people:

  • Coronary heart disease is more common among South Asians
  • Diabetes is five times higher among South Asians than the general population and three times higher for people from African and Caribbean backgrounds
  • haemoglobinopathies (thalassemia or sickle cell) disorders

Please help us to look after you, for example by attending Long Term Condition reviews
