People in need of health services are often at their most vulnerable - they’re unwell and likely afraid as well. What happens when those from marginalised communities, such as refugees, migrants or ethnic minority groups, face discrimination at the point of care? What is the impact on their wellbeing, and what does it say about us as a society? How do we ensure that ethics within the healthcare profession is not replaced by prejudice? We break down these issues with Dr Susheela Balasundaram from UNHCR and Dr Tan Hui Siu, Head of Hospital Ethics Support Service, Hospital Ampang.
