In the UK, there’s an ethnic group that is surprisingly large, but often overlooked by society, and formal healthcare services. The gypsy traveller community have poorer health outcomes because of systemic issues around access to health and education.

In this podcast we’re joined by Michelle Gavin and Samson Rattigan, who both work for Friend’s Families and Travellers – and who have have been working hard in East Sussex to bridge the gap between the healthcare system and those who identify as gypsies or travellers, and explain some of the simple ways in which GPs and hospitals can support this neglected group.
