BAPIO had a very successful conference “Patient Safety VS Criminalising Doctors: Learnings from Bawa- Garba incident” on 21st April 2018 at NCC, Solihull, Birmingham. The hall was packed with 200 delegates and there was passionate discussion about the Bawa-Garba Case.
Chief executive Charlie Massey in his speech announced a review into ‘why black and minority ethnic doctors are more likely to face complaints from employers than their white colleagues’. The review will be led by Roger Kline, a research fellow at Middlesex University Business School, who has previously carried out NHS research revealing a lack of BME doctors at the highest levels in the NHS. It will be co-led by Dr Doyin Atewologun, a faculty member at Queen Mary University of London’s School of Business and Management, specialising in work psychology, diversity and leadership.
There has been excellent feedback from the delegates.
