The Provider Podcast - Changing mindsets: Confronting white privilege in the NHS

White privilege doesn't mean your life isn't hard, it just means that it hasn't been made harder based on the colour of your skin. Racism exists in the NHS, as in wider society. Change will need to be led from the top. 

At our annual conference and exhibition 2020 we held a panel discussion exploring how trust leaders are challenging themselves and their organisations to identify and tackle race inequality, reflecting on the real harm it causes to staff and patients, and identifying the steps needed to make the NHS anti-racist.

The panel was chaired by Raj Jain, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and Pennine Acute Hospital Trust chief executive, who was joined by Patricia Miller, Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust chief executive, Richard Mitchell, Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust chief executive and Roisin Fallon-Williams, Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust chief executive, for this discussion.
