The Contribution of Caribbean People to the NHS
16 Mar 2020 by Mazeline Hemmings
The Kingsway Project will be doing a display for 2020 on the Contribution of Caribbean People to the NHS. A booklet is to be produced and will be available from October 2020.
The NHS was established within a month of the Windrush generation arriving in the UK in 1948. Caribbean people were keen to establish themselves in Britain and pursue new careers. Many of them sought employment in the newly-created NHS. They have played a vital role in the NHS from the earliest days.
The Project would like to hear stories from a variety of people who work or have worked for the NHS in the traditional roles of nurses and doctors, but also from wider professions and departments such as paramedics, speech and language therapist, occupational therapists, physiotherapist, mental health nurses, podiatrists, dentists, caterers and porters.
This project aims to collect the stories of those who worked and are working in the NHS to make known the contribution of the Caribbean people to the backbone of the NHS.

Completed questionnaires to be returned by the end of April.
