Ethnic Minority People Focus Group Report: A Happier and Healthier BerkshireDownload (PDF 91KB)
Summary of report content
Healthwatch Reading spoke with 9 Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, or representatives from organisations that connect with this group.
Focus group participants anonymously voted from a list of 11 priorities proposed by public health officials for the new strategy. Their top three were:
- Good mental health and wellbeing for all adults.
- Build strong, socially connected communities.
- To stop unfair differences in health between different groups of people.
Public health officials will consider the findings of a range of focus groups being held in Reading, Wokingham and West Berkshire as well as results of a wider public survey, before finalising the strategy to apply across the three areas.
