The latest National Statistics on the self-reported experience of patients in Black and Minority Ethnic groups, produced by the Department of Health with input and advice from the Care Quality Commission, were released on 11 June 2009 according to the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.
This report, produced by the Department of Health with input and advice from the Care Quality Commission, examines variations in the self-reported views of NHS patients from different ethnic groups. Results are presented from the 2008 to 2009 adult inpatient, 2008 to 2009 emergency department, 2007 to 2008 primary care services and 2007 to 2008 community mental health patient surveys. These findings give us insight into the areas of NHS service provision where experience of the service looks different to patients from different ethnic groups. Results are based on data from the National Patient Survey programme, led by the Care Quality Commission.
