Race and Health - Outcomes for ethnic minorities working in and receiving care from the NHS

Held on 24th June 2021, this lecture and discussion co-hosted by the BOA and the BHS addressed issues faced by black, Asian and minority ethnic staff and patients in the NHS. The talk highlights the implications for efficient and effective patient care and training the next generation of surgeons.

The aim is to facilitate culturally intelligent leadership and propagate culturally competent care in culturally safe frameworks. The hope is that this talk will enable participants to understand the importance of equality, equip them to achieve an equitable work environment and give them confidence to have the necessary conversations, to foster good relations between different groups.
