NHS organisations must face up to institutional racism


I absolutely commend this article. This is something generations of BME nurses have been suffering on top of the challenges faced in practice. The fear of speaking out is because of being shut down and being told we're using the race card or playing victim when it's our reality. Unfortunately the people in the position of power cannot relate to being discriminated against and therefore cannot empathise with our plight. I believe in the good in nurses, however this particular monster is so ingrained into the culture I find it hard to believe it will be eradicated in our generation. Pessimistic, maybe, but my mother was a nurse for 30 years and really suffered racism at work, I'm new in the profession and have started experiencing the same, the only difference in that it's far more implicit for me. I doubt I will see real change, but I'm determined to actively challenge it.
