About the review
In 2020, West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership set up an independent review into the impact of COVID-19 on health inequalities and support needed for ethnic minority communities and staff.
The review sessions were chaired by Professor Dame Donna Kinnair, Chief Executive and General Secretary of the Royal College of Nursing, a leading figure in national health and care policy.
The review aimed to build on the report findings published by Public Health England in June 2020 regarding the disparities in the risk and outcomes of COVID-19, as well as learning from the experience of its own partners. It aimed to strengthen understanding of the impact of COVID-19 on ethinic minority communities and staff, and review and accelerate existing work on health inequalities. This review is supporting our Partnership to build a more effective health and care system which responds to these challenges better than before.
