Involving Women in Coventry through Health Awareness Work

This case study is based on interviews with Coventry City Council's Health Development Officer at the Health Development Service and a member of the Asian community who attends the women's drop-in sessions at the Fosehill GP surgery.

The Health Development Service in Coventry runs drop-in services and weekly advice sessions targeted at women in Asian communities in the most deprived parts of the city. The involvement of women from the community in identifying the barriers they experience in accessing health services, and proposing ways to improve services to overcome these, is integrated into work to raise health awareness and improve take-up of services through information, advice and support.
