Abstract

To date there has been very little research on the health and well-being of Nepali citizens living int the UK. This mixed-methods study is crucial as the NHS and social services have minimal awareness of the specific health and related social care needs of the UK Nepali community compared to other larger Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities. Therefore, this study aims to identify health and social care needs to promote positive health and wellbeing for the Nepali population in the UK. It also assesses health inequalities amongst the Nepali population focusing on the need for national level prioritisation to reduce these inequalities experienced by the broader UK Nepali population using NHS services.
