Race Equality Foundation: How can we improve the recording of ethnicity in health settings?
Race Equality Foundation are holding a webinar on Tuesday 31st January at 10am to discuss how can we improve the recording of ethnicity in health settings.

At the webinar:
- You will hear key messages from the research about the recording of ethnicity
