Race Equality Guide
In May 2003 the Department, in partnership with the Equality Commission
for Northern Ireland launched Racial Equality in Health – A Good Practice Guide.
Dialogue with Ethnic Minority Groups suggests that people from black
and minority ethnic backgrounds had experienced significant barriers when attempting to access services
within the HPSS. The aim of this guide is to provide practical advice for all those HPSS staff whose
role it is to design or deliver services and to assist them in anticipating and overcoming such barriers.
