10 June 2020 — The Lowdown
Evidence-based journalism and research on the NHS to create change.
Report after report has told us about systemic racism in the NHS and in national policy, the government must address it.
“Empty words of concern from government politicians now can’t conceal the deep-seated racism that persists in the continued injustice of the deliberate, institutional, Home Office-led discrimination against the Windrush generation. Commonwealth and other BAME migrants were essential in the building of the NHS from 1948, with so many people from so many countries coming here to become nurses, doctors, professionals, and support staff to deliver the service we all now see as so vital. The question is surely why opposing racism is even a debate.” – Co-editor of the Lowdown, John Lister
