About this event

Who could have guessed the challenges that our society has faced in the last year? COVID-19 has changed the face of the NHS. And the Black Lives Matter movement has brought health inequalities to the spotlight in an unprecedented way.

Our health and social care system has changed because of these events. But it is impossible to ignore how much still needs to be done for true equity and equality of outcome.

In this upcoming Healthwatch Greenwich event, organised on the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death, we will explore the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement on health and social care in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

Join us to hear from representatives from the Council and local NHS services, and find out what commissioners have been doing to improve health and social care for marginalised communities in Royal Greenwich.

Take part in the discussion on what needs to be done and find out how your views and feedback can influence the future of health and social care services in Royal Greenwich, and beyond.

Our event will feature representatives from:

  • Royal Borough of Greenwich
  • South East London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
  • Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust
  • Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust

Event format:

  • Introduction from Healthwatch Greenwich CEO Joy Beishon.
  • A short presentation from each guest outlining institutional changes that have taken place in the last year as a result of the Black Lives Matter movement.
  • Each presentation will be followed by a discussion where audience will be able to ask their questions.
  • Wrap-up and final thoughts.
