NICE Guideline NG227 - Advocacy services for adults with health and social care needs

The phrase refers to the inequalities that are systemically rooted in the normal operations of social institutions, in which different categories of people may not be seen as having equal status. This can result in the marginalisation of, or discrimination against, certain categories of people and manifest itself in areas such as unequal access to healthcare, housing or education.
