NHS organisations must face up to institutional racism


Finally the truth comes out! I'm a black foreign student nurse who has wrongly been referred to FTP twice! These referrals and all the wrongful allegations that come with it, are attached to my record as if they were true! If I wasn't so passionate about care work, I would have quit a long time ago. I have questioned nursing care when I didn't think it was up to standard, just to be shut down and later on realise my suggestion was accepted and followed, but not as mine (as of the very same person who had shut me down). Sad times, when going to work in a hospital feels like going to court, constantly having to prove you deserve to be there... instead of making a positive contribution in people's lifes! So much energy that could be redirected to better use... nursing should be about patients and not a "war" about cultural background or ethnicity.
