Take the survey: Combatting racial discrimination against minority ethnic nurses, midwives and nursing associates
In November 2022, NHS England – in partnership with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and NHS Confederation – published the following resource:
The resource is for all nursing and midwifery professionals registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council working in the NHS, and supports all nurses, midwives and nursing associates across health and care.
As registered professionals, nurses, midwives and nursing associates all have responsibility under the NMC Code to challenge discriminatory behaviour, creating an environment where people are treated as individuals and with dignity and respect.
The resource can help nurses, midwives and nursing associates to act according to best professional practice if they experience racism, witness racism and in leading anti-racism. The resource also outlines the expected behaviours from NHS organisations and leaders.
As part of the continuing development of this resource, NHS Confederation are now gathering views via a usability survey. The survey aims to help NHS Confederation understand how far the resource is helpful to nursing and midwifery professionals in discharging their professional duty in challenging racism. It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete:
The feedback will provide insights on how the resource is used and identify where improvements can be made. The survey closes on 1 September 2023.
