Surveying Hard to Reach Groups - Introduction

Surveying Hard to Reach Groups

The National Health Service in Great Yarmouth and Waveney (NHS GYW) commissioned the University of East Anglia to report on how to access the views of those people described as 'Hard to Reach' regarding the health services in the region. This followed previous attempts to access patient views via a survey, which had limited success amongst these groups. 'Hard to Reach' groups are also referred to as 'Seldom Heard', 'Socially Excluded' and 'Easy to Ignore'.

These people include:

  • Travellers (including those who prefer to be known as Gypsies)
  • Migrant Workers
  • Looked After Children
  • Individuals within the criminal justice system
  • Asylum seekers and refugees
  • Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Groups
  • People with Learning Disabilities
  • People with long-term mental health problems
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Gender Identity
  • Homeless and insecurely housed people
