The Inclusion Health and Lived Experience Sub Group of the national Equality and Diversity Council has a vision to tackle health inequalities and advance equality for all. Its purpose is to assist the shaping of the future of the NHS from an equality, health inequalities and human rights perspective, working to improve equity of access to services and improved outcomes for the most disadvantaged groups, people with Lived Experience of stark inequalities and those with protected characteristics.

NHS England’s Equality and Health Inequalities Unit and sub group members have undertaken consultation with homeless people and Roma community members on draft leaflets designed for homeless people and for gypsy, traveller and Roma community members to address the barriers that people sometimes face in registering with a GP. Specialist input has been secured from clinicians who work with these populations, academic ‘experts in the field’ and representative organisations including the Traveller Movement.
