Following the events in the US, and news here about the disproportionate impact of COVID-19, we must ask what more we can do to tackle injustice and discrimination.
Healthwatch Camden exists to champion the voices of those who are often overlooked. As part of this, we are actively working with senior decision makers at Camden Council, Public Health and the NHS as part of the local inquiry into the impact of COVID-19 on BAME communities. But we must do more to help change the ways things are done.
In our work to help communities recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we will bring a renewed focus and energy to ensure that everyone’s voices are heard and their rights are respected. To do this, we need your support to make sure everyone has the opportunity to have a say in how health and social care services are delivered. Together we can play our part in creating a fairer society for all.
