Pollard, N., Kantartzis, S., Ismail, M. M., Fransen-Jabi, H. & Viana-Moldes, I. (2018) The occupation of accessing healthcare and processes of (dis)citizenship in UK Somali migrants: Sheffield case study, World Federation of Occupational Therapists Bulletin, 75(1), pp. 27-33.
In the UK free access to healthcare is regarded as a fundamental right accorded to all citizens, but there are significant health inequities experienced by ethnic minority populations. Accessing healthcare is an everyday occupation which can be made complicated by language issues and the design of communication systems. The example of people of Somali origin living in Sheffield is used to explore the occupational dimensions of access to healthcare as part of the participatory process of citizenship. Occupational analysis of healthcare access could contribute to better service provision.
