Abstract
A survey shows patients with other native tongues than Swedish feeling that they less often than native Swedes were treated well while in contact with health care.

A survey shows patients with other native tongues than Swedish feeling that they less often than native Swedes were treated well while in contact with health care. They experienced this despite health providers being bound by law to apply principles of equality in their dealings with patients. This thesis investigates how the regional health care provider in the area of Skåne disseminates and seeks support for equality policies throughout the organisation. I also analyse feelings of inclusion regarding the policy process from the employees’ point of view. That is since according to theories of a more including type of government, staff involvement is seen as an incentive for a more firmly embedded spread of policies. I conduct interviews both on management level and with liable persons in the primary health care sector. In my research I have found that the spread of equality policies is not working efficiently. Participation in the policy process from the perspective of the floor is poor. As it turns out equality is not just a question of rights but also a matter for the patient in his/her assurance of getting appropriate care. Therefore attitudes towards the issue is dependant on how the subject is framed. (Less)
