The NHS Cancer Plan draws attention to the inequity of access to cancer services for members of minority ethnic groups, according importance to such matters as culturally-seusitive information and different approaches to giving information. The Department of Health's latest Cancer Services: Update states that 'to improve the experience of patients from an ethnic background' is a significant area of risk within the development of cancer services. Again, improving access and
providing information and more informed choice to ethnic minority communities is identified as a priority.
