London Ambulance Service Patients Forum Joint Meeting with Sickle Cell Society

The article about my press release re Richard Barnbrook and diversity in the LAS appeared in the Irish Post last week in the column of Paul O'Donavan, I already posted the press release here two weeks ago but the column ended by stating:
"Good to see a member of one of London's largest ethnic minority communities (the Irish) standing up for diversity in London's ambulance service."
Thanks Paul. And next Monday sees a meeting of the Forum with a group who have been affected quite a lot by problems with the ambulance service - there is currently a case under investigation - people suffering from sickle cell illness. This illness is mainly found among the African and Caribbean communities and is particularly prevalent in areas such as Lambeth and Southwark. I will also be presenting my report on the LAS board meeting and I certainly hope that a good number of BME patients and users will attend.
