North West Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Strategic Advisory Group

Vision

A significant and sustained change within the NHS, based on what really matters to our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic colleagues and communities, tackling inequalities and taking positive action on racism.

Mission

Our ambition is for the NHS in the North West to be Anti-Racist and at the forefront of challenging and tackling racism and the health inequalities faced and experienced by people in our communities, brought into stark relief by the coronavirus pandemic.

We want our NHS in the North West to be clearly and unashamedly Anti-Racist, which means working to dismantle the structures that mean it is difficult for our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities to access services and to enter the NHS workforce and progress.

We believe that we can bring about real improvements, by working with our NHS colleagues as our allies, to improve knowledge of the issues that our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic colleagues face not just in the NHS but society in general.

We must unapologetically and purposefully identify, discuss and challenge issues of race and colour and the impact they have on our organisations, our systems, and our people and communities.

We must actively seek racism out and remove it from our great NHS. Our ambition is equality for all.
