NHS England and NHS Improvement will be facilitating a series of online events for BAME staff in the region to share their lived experiences around the vaccination programme to date.
The events will take place on the following dates:
- Tuesday 23 February 2021, 5.30pm to 7pm – book here
- Wednesday 24 February 2021, 2pm to 3.30pm – book here
- Saturday 27 February 2021, 1pm to 2.30pm – book here
The events will aim to provide a clearer understanding of vaccine uptake and potential hesitancies that are emerging among BAME colleagues and communities in the region, as well as helping to allay concerns by providing a safe space for staff to ask questions of experts from a diverse range of backgrounds.
The sessions are open to all health and social care colleagues working in the Midlands region, as well as BAME Workforce Allies, Chaplains, BAME Staff Networks, EDI Leads, Freedom to speak up guardians (FTSU), Staff Sides representatives and health and wellbeing champions
Please support the event by sharing via internal communications channels, as well as through local Covid vaccine teams, EDI leads and local BAME staff networks. For more information about the events, please contact Paul Singh by calling 07783 821 568 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
