I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been called a racist simply for acknowledging the ethnicity of the medical professionals who gave their lives to keep us safe.

It’s not just that outright racism and rising levels of Islamophobia affect the wellbeing of NHS workers willingly risking their lives to keep us all safe, it is that, as the General Medical Council has acknowledged, BAME medics face structural racism.
