Celebration Black History Month 2022 - Time for change: Action not words
Here at the Society, we celebrate Black History Month and the incredible talent and contributions of black intensivists, nurses, allied health professionals, pharmacists and psychologists caring for the sickest of patients in hospital.
There are almost 80,000 black staff working in the NHS, which represents over 6% of the total NHS workforce. This is made up of approx. 6,000 medical and 67,500 non-medical roles across the health service.
Intensive care is made up of diverse team of professionals from a wide range of black and ethnic backgrounds, and we want to reflect on these experiences and celebrate this year’s theme of Time for change: Actions not words. We’d like to hear from our members telling us:
