Produced by Revealing Reality and commissioned by the Taskforce on Multiple Conditions the report You only had to ask: What people with multiple conditions say about health equity marks the culmination of three years of the Taskforce’s work and represent its final output.

The report includes the powerful and compelling stories of eight people who shared detailed insights into how they manage their own health, their own views and experiences of how well health and social care services have worked for them, and how they would really like to be supported. From ambitious data analyst Bekele, a 26-year-old man of British Somali heritage, to Vera, a 74-year-old retired cleaner, mother of eight and migrant from Portugal, the participants in this report have rich histories to share and their stories bring vividly to life the challenges they have faced before and during the pandemic.

Identifying a series of key questions and opportunities for change, this work is designed to support and shape the plans and actions of everyone responsible for the delivery of health and care services alongside others who can make a difference for people with multiple conditions.
