How can we allow🤔in #NHS of 2021👇

'comments made throughout my career that I was an inferior doctor'

'would not get through interview if competing against a White British person even if less qualified..competition was only between similar doctors from nonwhite backgrounds' /4
How can we allow in #NHS of 2021👇

'training posts would not have been available to someone of my ethnicity…discouraged
by consultants from applying to certain specialties'

'Felt unduly pressured rather than supported…as though more was expected of me due to
my background' /5
How can we allow in #NHS of 2021 a trainee to experience👇

'a white GP trainer specifically picked on only brown trainees ... She kept on saying, ‘you have to get better
otherwise you will create more work for your GP colleagues’ /6
#COVID19 has brought not only societal health inequalities but also discrimination within NHS under spotlight

Let this be the watershed moment where practical steps are taken to end any kind of #NHSdiscrimination

We have had enough Reports,Inquiries now is time for ACTION /7

1-Virus spreads through air especially indoor in areas of low ventialtion

2-Every time you exhale CO2 is exhaled in air. You can use CO2 levels to see if room is filling with potentially infectious exhalations
CO2 level lets you estimate if enough fresh outside air is getting in

2- I did a survey of 1071 BAME doctors in June 👇.…

Results of the survey showed very worrying findings

It does appear that IMG & BAME doctors who studied medicine in UK Universities face similar challenges in NHS
@drpshukla @terry_moran1 @Prerana_Issar
3- BAME NHS doctors when asked if they ever felt pressurised to work without adequate PPE

1-To keep schools open,economy going we need fit for purpose #TrackAndTrace

Spent 5 minutes this morning analysing track&trace data from 3-9 Sept

Was amazed at the extent of failure of current track&trace

Read through this thread to see what I mean

2-#SercoTestAndTrace proudly declares 73.8% of known contacts reached between 3-9 Sept

Does this means that maybe 26.2% of potential contacts not reached & hence not isolating?

Not really....... read on

@anilkjain61 @DrUmeshPrabhu @DrOKaneAgain @trentconsultant @helenbevan
3-#NHSTestAndTrace doesn't mention out of 18371+cases b/w 3-9 Sept it got close contact details from only 10653 cases

73.8% contacts it reached is infact 73.8% close contacts of 58% not all positive cases b/w 3-9 Sept

42% +cases close contacts it did not even tried to reach
