“Nearly 50% of our psychiatrists & physician associates are from BAME backgrounds - how can we recognise and learn from the experience they bring to benefit the organisation and our service users?” was a question on Twitter by a colleague.
I tried putting in a few succinct comments, as much as Twitter character counts would allow, but the thoughts brought back so many memories I could not help but write more. It is a multi-layered question which deserves multi-layered answers and complex thinking. But before we come to solutions, a bit of context will help the uninitiated reader.
