‘Nursing Narratives: Racism and the Pandemic is a collaborative project that uses documentary film and writing to amplify the experiences and perspectives of black and minority ethnic health workers. Black and migrant nurses and care staff have made a critical contribution to the NHS and social care. But the coronavirus outbreak has laid bare structural inequalities and black and minority ethnic communities have suffered the greatest losses. A lot of data has been collected to prove that racism exists but what does this mean in terms of people’s lives, particularly during the pandemic? We talked to nurses and support staff to record their stories and shed light on the diverse racisms that they have encountered both during the pandemic and historically during their careers: institutional and structural racism, the hostile environment, bullying, micro-aggressions, cultural insensitivity, etc. We believe their knowledge and experience can hold the key to creating significant change through which to support the building of a more inclusive society and a more equitable NHS capable of delivering the best patient care.
