On 4th March it was Overseas NHS Workers Day. Doctor’s Association UK screened Hostile at their organisation with over 100 attendees.
The NHS has always needed overseas workers. Since day one. NHS Overseas Workers are here to help – but this country is hostile to those it asked to help its sick, its frail, its vulnerable, its dying.
“Until the authorities acknowledge the contributions of international healthcare workers in the NHS and establish measures to retain staff, the quality of care and patient safety will suffer – and that is going to hurt.” – Overseas NHS Workers Day organiser, Dr Pushpo Hossain
The Doctors’ Association UK are impact partners of Hostile, and are a professional association for doctors in the United Kingdom. The association was formed by junior doctors led by Dr Samantha Batt-Rawden in January 2018 in response to the Bawa-Garba case. DAUK is a non-profit organisation which advocates for the medical profession and the wider NHS.
As part of the Impact Campaign for Hostile, the film is screening across the country at community-based venues. Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how your organisation can get involved.
