Research by the BMA published this week, reveals that 76% of doctors across the UK experienced racism in their workplace. The research published has no regional (sic) breakdown and is presented by the MSM as a UK-wide problem.
However, a contact at the BMA has shared this with me:
Experienced racism within the past two years
- Scotland – 66%
- Wales – 70%
- Northern Ireland – 85%
The figure for England is not available but, given the size of their sample, can be safely assumed to be around the UK figure of 76%, significantly higher than in Scotland.
I agree that the Scottish figure is unacceptable too but remember that this is a self-selecting sample of only 276 out of, I’m guessing, several thousand.
