This report takes a cultural approach to health care emphasising how our understandings of the everyday are formed within a broad cultural framework which is influenced by factors such as gender, ethnicity, race , class, age and sexuality. It presents a more multi-faceted and complex understanding of the interface between multiple levels of health service provision and the needs and expectations of diverse individuals and communities.
