Bridging the gap: Strengthening relations between hospices and muslims of Britain

New report calls for action on “data gaps” to increase access to hospice care services for Muslims.

Hospices and NHS services must capture data about religion and ethnicity much more consistently from people using their services – as glaring gaps in this data are preventing effective planning of palliative and hospice services for Muslim patients and their families – according to a new report launched today.

Bridging the Gap: Strengthening relations between hospices and Muslims of Britain was commissioned by the charities Hospice UK and Together for Short Lives and researched and written by the Woolf Institute.
