Top 50 Black and Minority Ethnic Health Leaders Announced

Top 50 Black and Minority Ethnic Health Leaders Announced

Leading black and minority ethnic individuals working across healthcare have been recognised in the Health Service Journal’s annual listing of the top 50 most influential black and minority ethnic people in health, announced today.

This year’s list has been sponsored by the NHS Race and Health Observatory.

Dr Habib Naqvi, Director of the NHS Race and Health Observatory, said: 

“The immense contribution of people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds has been critical to our health and care services, and continues to be guided by fantastic leaders. We are proud to honour these outstanding role models from diverse backgrounds, who continue to play leading roles in improving care for patients and shaping the future of healthcare in England. We cannot underestimate the power of role models in inspiring current and future generations of healthcare leaders. That is why this list should be another reminder to us all, that we can and must do more to increase diverse representation at leadership levels across our health and care system.”
