Migration has been vital to UK healthcare since at least the birth of the NHS. About fifteen percent of NHS staff today are not British nationals, and this figure rises for doctors, registered nurses and support workers. Even more have family histories embedded in stories of migration – their parents, grandparents or great-grandparents travelling from around the world in response to the need for healthcare staff in the UK.
Join us for an interactive event held on Nursing Support Workers Day, to highlight and learn from the tales of support workers from overseas. Hear about the history of migration and the NHS from Aditi Anand, curator of the fantastic Heart of the Nation exhibition at the Migration Museum, alongside the personal stories of overseas nursing support workers, and their experiences good and bad.
A virtual event hosted by the RCN Nursing Support Worker Committee and the RCN Library and Archive Service, opened by RCN President and chair of the RCN International Committee Denise Chaffer.
This event is open to all and will take place online. Please sign up to attend and the link to join will be circulated in advance.
