Call for Evidence: Inquiry into racial inequality in health and social care

Last month the Equality and Human Rights Commission launched a statutory inquiry into racial inequality in health and social care, triggered by the pandemic. This week a call for evidence was issued by the inquiry.

The inquiry will consider how ethnic minority health and social care workers’ treatment during the pandemic has been influenced by their:

  • race
  • employment status
  • immigration status
  • working conditions

EHRC are calling on people to complete a confidential survey to share their experiences. They want to hear from the following groups:

  • Ethnic minority workers in lower paid roles in health and social care
  • Co-workers of ethnic minority workers
  • Health and social care employers
  • Organisations who support workers, e.g. Trade Unions

They want to hear from as many people who may have relevant information as possible.

The deadline for submissions is Sunday 7th February.
