We know the pandemic has disproportionately affected the NHS workers who come from a ethnic minorities, we also know that doctors from an ethnic minority face additional barriers to accessing support - so how well have the various support schemes put in place during the pandemic helped those doctors from ethnic minorities? Dammie Olubawale, medical student and grants and partnerships manager at Melanin Medics, joins us to talk about a fund they've created specifically to help doctors of black African and Caribbean heritage, to access support tailored to them. Dammie explains some of the reasons which doctors, particularly from that heritage, may be more reluctant to access support - and how organisations large and small need to think about tailoring their wellbeing initiatives to include all staff.
