The medical community in the UK is incredibly diverse, with medical students and doctors coming from across the globe to study and work in healthcare.
We have collated resources to help medical students and doctors navigate racism in healthcare, whether between patients and staff, or between staff themselves.
The resources here are suitable for all levels and settings, from medical students and junior doctors, to General Practice (GP) surgeries and specialist areas of consultancy.
Some of the resources created for the Dare to CARE project feature accounts of racism experienced by individuals. These scenarios are anonymised, but have been created using real stories taken from a range of sources.
"I need to understand the gaps in medical knowledge due to systemic racism, particularly about how rashes present, and skin colour changes being used as symptoms (e.g. blue lips)."
