In a nutshell: A report released from Marie Curie Cancer Care has found that palliative care in the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities across Cardiff and the Vale is underused. Research carried out by Marie Curie with local communities has found that minority ethnic communities are less likely to choose to use their hospice service in Wales because of concerns about language, facilities for religious worship and dietary requirements. The report also revealed that despite being aware of hospices, communities felt GPs can also be reluctant to suggest palliative care options to ethnic minorities.
