There then, here now: BME people and the NHS

Mon, 22 June 2020 16:00 – 17:00

We want to highlight both the contribution of BME people & migration to the NHS past and present, but also the realities faced then and now (hostility in the workplace, the hostile environment and the disproportionate impact of COVID-19).

The disproportionate deaths of BME NHS staff and BME people generally, and the restrictionist Immigration Bill that is making its way through parliament makes the need for such a conversation more pertinent than ever.
