The programme has been developed in response to a community consultation with the Caribbean & African community and healthcare professionals who wanted better insights about the Black community to improve health outcomes. Based upon this evidence Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership (GMHSCP) commissioned this programme to help address the health and wellbeing inequities that have been unaddressed for decades and further exposed by COVID-19.
BHIP uses evidence through research which highlights the disparities in health outcomes across a number of health and wellbeing measures. It offers a robust tool for GP Practices to improve outcomes of their patients from the Black community. We offer a quality assurance service that provides awareness of a range of issues that impact upon the engagement of Caribbean and African people in relation to their health and wellbeing.
