Mala Rao on the UK's new race in health observatory The BMJ Podcast

    • Science

Earlier this year, the bmj published a racism in medicine issue - the issue was guest edited by Lord Victor Adebowale, chief executive of the NHS Confederation and Professor Mala Rao, professor of public health at Imperial College London.

At the event to launch the issue, they managed to persuade Simon Stephens , chief executive of the NHS, to put money into a “race in health observatory”

Mala joins us to talk about what that observatory is going to do, how it will maintain independence, it's role in synthesising, commissioning and implementing research, and where the organisation might begin in tackling the issue.
