Migration Working Group NW – Seminar Access to Healthcare in Super-diverse Neighbourhoods Prof Simon Pemberton (University of Keele)

To date little attention has been focused on how the differing features of ‘super-diverse’ neighbourhoods shape residents’ access to healthcare services. This talk highlights how defining features of super-diverse neighbourhoods – ‘newness’, ‘novelty’ and ‘diversity’ – influence a number of neighbourhood ‘domains’ and ‘rules of access’ that regulate access to healthcare. Issues of uncertainty, affordability, compliance, transnationalism and the diversity of community and local sociability are identified as being particularly significant, but which may vary in importance according to the nationality, ethnicity and / or religion of particular individuals.

I4P is delighted to sponsor this talk as part of the Migration Working Group – North West seminar series 2018/19.

Furthermore, he was also the lead UK investigator in a £1 million NORFACE-funded project exploring health-seeking practices in super-diverse areas. Simon has managed over forty large research projects from proposal to completion and has published over eighty peer-reviewed papers and reports. His work has also informed and significantly influenced the work of national and local governments, trade unions and local community partnerships.
