BME staff on the road to inclusion

Edited by Jennifer Valentine-Miller

“The NHS depends on black and minority ethnic staff to provide high quality, reliable and safe care to patients.” (The Guardian, 2018)

The creation of the NHS 70 years ago coincided with the beginning of a wave of immigration from the Commonwealth and colonies. The British Nationality Act of 1948 affirmed unrestricted movement within the Commonwealth. In 1962 Enoch Powell, the then Conservative health minister launched the Hospital Plan – which envisaged the NHS expanding due to a short supply of skilled staff. Because of their value to the Service their contribution was recognised.

Unfortunately, today many BME staff are experiencing a different NHS which is not as successful or rewarding compared to non-BME staff.

The NHS Leadership Academy state that they hold the principles of equality and inclusion at the heart of everything they do and all that they stand for – the NHS is a universal service and are committed to developing a leadership community which is representative of the groups they serve.

Epiphany: The film

Epiphany
Full interview with the co-producer Steve Levy conducted by The British Blacklist (TBB) (http://thebritishblacklist.co.uk/levy)

Epiphany is based on true events. Can you tell us a bit more about that and whose story this is?

SL: The first part of the story is my encounter with a young man called Lenny who I met in Brick Lane. He came from behind with a hoodie over his head and put his hand on my shoulder. As I turned to confront him thinking this was going to end badly, instead we engaged in a deep, meaningful and open conversation about his life, which ended with me praying for him, and him crying. This left me speechless and my heart filled with so much compassion for this young man. One act of kindness can make all the difference.
The second part is based on an ex-family member who was kidnapped by some youths, held in a warehouse and forced to give up his credit cards, eventually they let him go, but the whole event left him traumatised. His story stuck with me, so when I had my encounter with Lenny I thought somehow these two stories had synergy, and I was right.

What are your hopes for your film’s future?

SL: I hope the film goes on to make people think about the power of the Gospel and its ability to change lives. Also, to show my talents as a first-time film director/producer in the hope I will get investment to make a feature film or a Netflix series. I would like to spend the rest of my life making meaningful films that will impact the world and inspire the next generation of young filmmakers like my son. This one is for you Brandon.

Violent crime is on the rise, but who is working to keep us safe?

Policeforce

England and Wales have lost over 45,000 police officers and staff since 2010, a 19% drop in the workforce. Meanwhile, violent crime is on the rise and forces are struggling to respond to demand due to budget cuts, recent reports from the Office for National Statistics and police watchdog HMIC have found.

But what does that mean for your community?
UNISON is the biggest union for police staff. They have investigated the drop within each of the 43 police forces in England and Wales.

The police workforce is made up of policing officers and police staff who work in teams to keep communities safe. Police staff make up 40% of the total police workforce and carry out both operational and supporting roles.  Police staff include police community support officers (PCSOs), and designated officers (like crime scene examiners, investigators, escort and custody officers) who have police powers.

All these categories of police staff, as well as police officers, have suffered big cuts in numbers since 2010.
