  • White GPs have a role in calling time on racism from patients

    Well written article! Thank you Claire a very relevant and profoundly prevalent issue- Racism! I have to agree it not just exogenous it’s intrinsically endogenous too!
    Sometimes I don’t know what’s worse racist patients or racist colleagues- who just treat you like dirt in coffee rooms/ Doctors Mess, on courses, ward rounds etc etc - they just carry on talking - disregarding your presence, excluding you from conversations ( like either you don’t have a brain or don’t know why you’re here)
    None of this is acceptable.
    Don’t just like exotic food, holiday or wine!! Constructive learning is the way forwards for everyone.

    I agree with the workload issues and in the view of so called debated safety issues- it’s only getting worse day by day!
