Labour comments on the BMA’s analysis of CERD report

Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Women and Equalities Secretary, commenting on the BMA’s analysis of the report from the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities, said:


“As the BMA highlight, the shoddy report cherry-picked data and ignored the experience of Black, Asian and ethnic minority medical staff.


“Instead of wasting time and resource responding to the report, the Government should focus on implementing the 253 recommendations from previous reviews into race equality and ending racism experienced within the NHS.”
