Focus group for Bangladeshi women in mother tongue

Healthwatch Camden wants to reduce inequalities in health and social care services. We’re aware that black, minority ethnic and faith communities can face particular difficulties in accessing health and social care services.

That’s why we’re working with local community groups to organise focus group discussions in mother tongue with a wide range of different BME people who live in the borough.

We recently held a focus group for Bangladeshi women in mother tongue at the Chadeswell Health Living Centre in Kings Cross. The session was on ‘Access to GP services and healthy living and lifestyles’.

Healthwatch Camden needs everyone to be involved so that we can understand the issues that affect different communities. We’re here to make services better, not knock them when they’re getting things right.

The feedback from the Bangladeshi focus group will enable us to identify the key themes and challenges faced by women in that community. It will also help us to pinpoint where further research and action is needed.
