Discriminatory practice can have a very negative effect on people because it could hurt their feelings or even some types of discrimination can physically hurt them. All different types of discrimination can lead to someone not using health and social care services and this could lead to poorer health.

While we know that prejudice exists, all too often it goes on around us, we may even turn a blind eye, not wanting to get involved, or worst, have that negative attention aimed at us or a loved one.

Direct discrimination: treating someone less favourably because of their actual or perceived sex, or because of the sex of someone with whom they associate.

For example, a requirement that job applicants must be six feet tall could be met by significantly fewer women than men.
