HSMC’s solidarity with Black Lives Matter 

The Health Services Management Centre expresses its outrage at the death of George Floyd in the United States and our solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We recognise that the structural inequalities and historical injustices experienced by people of colour are wrong and that we have individual and collective responsibility to end these inequalities and all forms of discrimination. Health inequalities are one of the most pernicious injustices faced by people of colour across the UK and the world that limit life and stifle potential. We also know that health and care services in the UK rely significantly on the commitment and expertise of people of colour, but also that they continue to face racial discrimination on a daily basis. Through our research and teaching on the organisation and management of health and care services, the Health Services Management Centre will take proactive steps to address these inequalities and injustices in partnership with people of colour.
