Against the Odds : black and minority ethnic clinicians and Manchester 1948 to 2009 / Emma L. Jones & Stephanie J. Snow

£38.99

Product description

Publication date: 2010. Condition: Very good. The cover is in very good condition, with just a touch of corner wear and a very small mark at the top of the back cover. Internally the book is in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked - almost as new. Content: " 'Against the Odds' explores the twin themes of health workforce planning and discrimination in the NHS in a local setting. Drawing on new historical research and oral history, the authors weave together the personal experiences of BME clinicians in Manchester with the wider histories of labour shortages, migration, discrimination, and the history of medicine and the NHS in the city over the last sixty years. If equity and opportunity in the NHS are to be improved we need to learn from experience. This essay in recent local history will be of benefit to all those dealing with racial equality in Manchester and beyond.'
