About The Event

This event was held in Black History Month, addressing the following: 


"Around 1/3 of NHS employed staff identify as being BME. Yet why does discrimination still exist here?". 


Joined by a panel of esteemed personnel from various branches of Practise within the NHS, we explored the topic and potential root causes. We delved into many avenues, including the Bawa-Garba case that has sent shockwaves through the medical profession.

Melanin Medics is glad to have supported this event run by the Bart and the London BME Team
