Minority groups 'miss out on care,' cancer charity says

Ethnic minority communities in Wales may not be getting the end-of-life care they need, a cancer charity says.

Marie Curie Cancer Care said language barriers and concerns over worship and dietary needs could be a barrier to services for patients in Cardiff.

The report also found GPs were often reluctant to suggest hospices to members of ethnic minority groups.

The charity says it is trying to address the issue to ensure equal access for all to services.
