Welcome to BME Medics, a platform committed to improving diversity and inclusion in healthcare.
Despite ethnic minorities making up 14% of the UK population and one third of the NHS, we are yet to see such representation in senior management roles within healthcare occupied by members of the BAME community. The lack of BME representation can be felt in all aspects of Medicine, from teaching and curricula to clinical practice and legislation. We want to see progressive healthcare, not only for our benefit but for that of our wider society.
We believe that representation is important in order to improve diversity and inclusion in our hospitals, clinics and beyond. BME Medics is a space to elevate, inspire and showcase in order to effect positive change.
Join us as we build community, inspire others and raise awareness.
