A literature review of patient engagement around barriers to accessing healthcare

Review to inform how cancer referrals from primary care might be increased

Wessex Voices was asked by the Wessex Cancer Alliance to carry out a review of patient insights into the barriers to people accessing health services that exacerbate health inequalities. The aims are to provide recommendations as to how the Alliance can increase cancer referrals from those who are less likely to go to their GP and build the confidence of patients to access cancer services in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
