Staff Guide to the Needs of Ethnic-Religious Minority Communities

This booklet has been produced for the Equality & Diversity Steering Committee of Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust.  Its purpose is to help care staff in unfamiliar situations meet the cultural and religious needs of their Patients; particularly if no immediate family members are available.  Wherever possible, views of the individual or family should be sought.

 

The information offered in this publication is by no means comprehensive or exhaustive - and it should be stressed that there are variations of belief and practice within the different communities included - but it is hoped that the outlines presented will serve to heighten awareness ot hte need for sensitive treatment of all our communities in Lincolnshire.

 

The document is available in alternative formats on request.  Further information about Equality and Diversity within LCHS is available by contacting:]
