This chapter discusses the available evidence on health patterns among ethnic groups in England and considers significant findings from data sets that have become available since the report of the Acheson Inquiry was published. It describes the compounding effects of poorer social circumstances and racism on minority ethnic groups and examines ethnic groups' access to and use of health services. It discusses changes in the responsibilities of public services and the dilemma of general and specific health policies.
