Ill health

E. McLeod, Paul Bywaters

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    “Recipients of social care services are likely to be among the most socially disadvantaged and most will have a long-term debilitating illness or disability” (Marmot, 2010, p.159). Evidence of this double jeapordy has been reported for looked-after children and care leavers, mental health survivors, older people and people with learning disabilities. Service users are also over-represented in groups liable to receive inferior treatment or care when ill. However, the association between service users’ ill health, poor access to treatment and adverse social circumstances remains neglected as a focus for social work.
