I applaud this article for exposing a sensitive and genuine reality that has often been overlooked. Changing a system of ideologies begins by acknowledging the problem and accepting it's prevalence. Sadly, NHS top governance teams don't accept that this is happening. Hence the situation is a norm in majority of Trusts. Arguably, the NHS has the most culturally diverse workforce in the United Kingdom but it's management does not reflect this fact. During my Nursing training, as a matured black adult Student Nurse I had to work three times harder than my white counterparts in order to get a pass in most of my placements. I was severely criticised and made to pay for minor incidents that my white counterpart make every day and get away with without any criticism. Sadly this is still happening. In all of this I make bold to say that we can testify of some positives. I have witnessed genuine NHS white management that are willing to bring about an uncommon change by treating everyone the same and providing equal opportunities. I believe so much in the NHS and I am confident that things can change. However, the actual change must begin from the top Governance teams and spread down.
