Black Lives Matter
The National Haemoglobinopathy Panel, Haemoglobinopathy Coordinating Centres along with our partners the UK Forum on Haemoglobinopathies, Sickle Cell Society, UK Thalassaemia Society, we stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.

After all, it’s hard to be healthy without access to good jobs and schools and, safe, affordable homes. Health equity means increasing opportunities for everyone to live the healthiest life possible, no matter who we are, where we live, or how much money we make.
Social inclusion by definition is about making all groups of people feel included and valued within their society or community.
Where individuals or groups of individuals are excluded, or feel on the margins of society there is often a direct impact on their health. Certain illness or disability itself can also cause people to be excluded.

All talks were superb, but I think this was the best today.
Fantastic session and exceptionally powerful.
A difficult topic to listen to as we are all too aware of the difficulties we face every day in our speciality, but gave a great deal of hope that we can bring around change together.
Excellent presentation, lots of lessons to be learnt and actions to be implemented.
Really glad that race-related inequalities are still at the forefront of our discussions
