Black History Month is a nationwide celebration of Black History, Arts and Culture throughout the UK.
In the NHS, 6.1 per cent of staff identify as being of black ethnicity. Black History Month has been recognised for many years with a month-long programme of inspirational events and workshops - honoring the achievements, culture, and rich history of black people.
This year, the restrictions placed by the impact of COVID-19 has meant many organisations will not be holding face-to-face events, but instead will be finding more innovative ways to mark the occasion with virtual meet-ups and online events.
The CCG are supporting this important month alongside our partners in Surrey Heartlands Health and Care Partnership.
