    This “country report” for England is part of a larger, collaborative effort between eight European countries to document and analyse access to health care services. Key points from the country reports have been collated into an overall report for the European Commission, the funders of the project. The purpose of this report is to identify and analyze barriers to access to health care services which are faced by vulnerable groups in society, and especially those most exposed to social exclusion. In addition, the report reviews the policy initiatives aimed at improving access and equity of access, highlighting the features that appear to be most promising in achieving these aims. This report addresses only the specific aims of the project brief and therefore does not cover the full range of issues related to access and quality.
