How a link nurse ensured equal treatment for people of Asian origin with dementia


The study should have been more comprehensive. To say that black and Asian patients are under represented in London, for example(which is the largest populated area in the UK), is totally wrong. I have worked in London for 16 years, in substantive posts and agency roles. In that time, I have worked in most areas of London. Most of the wards I have worked in employed more black and Asian staff than staff from any other ethnic/cultural backgrounds. Whether this is a good or bad thing is irrelevant as good, or bad nursing is nothing to do with ethnic or cultural identity but to say that black and Asian patients are under reperesented is nonsense.
