In health and social care no one should be marginalised no matter what their background is circumstances, sexual orientation on health status. * Disempowerment means that a group of people are discriminated, by the health professions it could be the nurses in the hospital discriminating against the group of people; this also means that the group of people cannot stand up for themselves because they are scared. * Low esteem and self identity

Discrimination can also lead to people loosing their self esteem , however some people who are already vulnerable man have low self esteem before they start using the health and social care service.
