In the UK, doctors and social workers are required to note your religion, ethnicity and culture, on your records, so that they; a) don't accidentally cause offence,
b) can adjust treatment etc where need be,
and c) don't make the mistake of assuming that white skin = christian, brown = muslim or hindu.

You'll even find doctors making adjustments for muslims wanting to fast during ramadan (and of course not being given pig-derived insulin), or patients needing to see a same sex doctor or nurse because of religious or cultural "modesty". Better that than have people going without treatment.
