Paresh Vyas, MRCP, FRCP, FRCPath, Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, University of Oxford, Oxford, outlines a retrospective review detailing poorer healthcare outcomes for black patients compared to white patients in the US. Whilst the review had methodological limitations, there were clear disparities in healthcare outcomes, regardless of access to healthcare. Prof. Vyas suggests collecting data from a more diverse population in terms of ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and access to healthcare and education to accurately reflect outcome disparities. He additionally suggests the undertaking of a similar study in the UK. This interview took place at the 2021 British Society for Haematology Annual Scientific Meeting.
