Discrimination in the NHS must be stopped

Abstract

There have always been staff from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds in the NHS, with a large influx during the 1950s in particular. Discrimination then would have been as unacceptable as it is now, even though it was often excused on the grounds of ignorance. But there is no excuse in 2012 for anyone in the health service, or society at large, to behave prejudicially towards a group of people because of their colour. It is against the law, after all.
