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 South London and Maudsley Hospital (SLaM) staff. The aim is to work together to re-imagine mental health services in order to achieve anti-racism and equity in these services.
In this first iteration of PCREF, 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 their care.
How to get involved?
SLaM invites members of the Black community to attend a series of events they are calling ‘Fit for Partnership’ . The first event is on Friday 5 February, 10am – 12pm. To join, please register here.
