A partnership to achieve anti-racism and equity from SLaM
The Patient and Carer Race Equality Framework (PCREF) is a new way of working which brings together Black communities, Black service users and their carers with SLaM staff. Together we will re-imagine mental health services to achieve anti-racism and equity in mental health services.
In this first iteration of PCREF, South London and Maudsley (SLaM) is focusing on improving Access, Experience and Outcomes for Black African, Black Caribbean and Black Other (including Mixed) communities. This is because SLaM data shows that these groups are most disadvantaged in our care.
In partnership with host organisations that support two borough each, Lambeth Black Thrive (Southwark and Lambeth) and Croydon BME Forum (Lewisham and Croydon), SLaM warmly invite members of the Black community to attend a series of events they are calling ‘Fit for Partnership’. To join them on this important journey, please see below:
Fit For Partnership – Lewisham’s Black Community: Tuesday 2 February, 6pm – 8pm
For more information email: LewishamIAG@bmeforum.org
SLaM are also holding an event for Black service users and their carers, please see these details below:
Four borough Service User and Carer event: Thursday 4 February, 1pm – 3pm
