Unit Learning Outcomes and Assessment Brief

What am I required to do in this assignment?

On completion of this unit, you should be able to:


1. Demonstrate the knowledge and understanding of differing social groups experiences of health and/or healthcare in the United Kingdom


2. Demonstrate the skills and abilities associated with critical analysis and synthesis of relevant literature and policy, and identification of gaps in current policy.

There is only one assessment on this unit and it is a 2,000 word individual report. You will write a report discussing health inequities in relation to gender, age or ethnicity. You are required to choose one of the health issue listed below, explore the nature of health inequities in relation to gender, age or ethnicity, discuss policy addressing the inequities and make suggestions for improvement.


You must choose one of the following topics for your assignment: 

1. Ethnic minority women and maternity care
2. African-Caribbean men and schizophrenia
3. Mental health service provision for older people
4. Older people's use of GP services and/or specialist care
5. Gypsies and Travellers' access to health care 
6. Asylum seekers' access to health care 
7. LGBT+ groups' access to health care


'Access to health care' could be interpreted as health care in general OR access to a specific treatment or specific service.


You are required to: 

Choose one of the seven topics 

Discuss how the chosen topic is related to gender, age or ethnicity-based inequities in health (link your discussion to only ONE type of health inequity)


Explore the nature and the extent of health inequities in relation to the chosen health issue. The discussion must focus on health inequities related to gender, age or ethnicity (you should focus on only ONE of the three variables).


Discuss policy and legislation addressing the specific type of inequities and identify gaps in policy and legislation
(it is suggested that you explore developments in policy aimed at tackling the health inequities you discussed)

Make suggestions for improvement that can fill the gaps in policy and legislation


You must use a minimum of 10 academic sources (i.e. only peer-reviewed journal articles count). You are encouraged to carry out wider reading. On top of the 10 journal articles, you can also include books and other credible sources (e.g. reports from international organisations) but they will NOT be counted as part of your 10 academic sources.


Ensure that all your sections are linked – e.g. if you chose a topic that is related to gender-based health inequity, you are expected to explore that topic from the gender-based health inequity perspective only. No other variables, such as age and ethnicity, are expected to be included in your work.


Ensure that you include your in-text references. In all cases, in-text references must match up with what appears in your reference list. Every in-text citation/reference should correspond to a reference on the list at the end (and vice versa).


You must use the Harvard referencing system. The University officially advises students to use the following website for referencing guidelines:


No more than 5% of your work should be in the form of quotes.


You must write in your own words. You are reminded that plagiarism of any type will be penalised and result in a fail.

In order to pass the assessment, you will need to:

  • Choose a health issue that is closely related to gender, age or ethnicity-based inequities in health.
  • Critically discuss the nature and the extent of health inequities in relation to gender, age or ethnicity.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of relevant policy and make suggestions to address gaps in current policy.

Please read the assessment brief carefully and complete this section yourself

This assignment will link to key concepts and ideas taught in the lectures/seminars. In lectures/seminars you will be learning about how differing social groups experience health and health care in the UK and differing factors that may impact on this including the historical social construction of differing groups and inequalities faced.  You will demonstrate graduate-level skills and knowledge.

Your assignment will be marked according to the threshold expectations and the criteria on the following page.


You can use them to evaluate your own work and consider your grade before you submit.
