NHS Race and Health Observatory panel session

15 Jun 2021
A - Main stage

The NHS Race and Health Observatory, supported by NHS England and NHS Improvement and hosted by the NHS Confederation, has been established to identify and tackle the specific health challenges facing people from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds.

The Observatory is a dynamic body that provides evidence-based, actionable recommendations that can be adopted by policy makers and which support and comment on the implications of those actions.

This main stage session from the NHS Race and Health Observatory will see an esteemed panel discuss roles and responsibilities in terms of addressing ethnic health inequalities, with a focus on practical application and impact.
