NHS BWAE 1928 - Digest Of The Mental Health Workshop

Digest of the Mental Health Workshop May 2022 10 NHS LEADERS’ REFLECTIONS ON THIS REPORT “This report is an important contribution to our ICS’s work to tackle inequalities in health and care. It provides us with a range of recommendations that can make a tangible difference to mental health support for Muslim communities. One of the recommendations refers to training our workforce in 3C’s – compassion, curiosity and cultural nuance. I believe these attributes should guide all of us in health and care. We should all show compassion to those who experience discrimination and disadvantage, curiosity about each other’s lives, values and challenges, and cultural nuance to recognise that everyone in every community is unique. one size will never fit all. Our Integrated Care Board, which will come into being on 1 July 2022, will commit to ensuring that we take forward these recommendations and incorporate the 3Cs into our values and in our practice.” Dr Ed Garratt CHIEF EXECUTIVE, NHS IPSWICH & EAST SUFFOLK CCG, NORTH EAST ESSEX CCG, WEST SUFFOLK CCG CHIEF EXECUTIVE (DESIGNATE), SUFFOLK & NORTH EAST ESSEX INTEGRATED CARE BOARD Participants at the workshop with Apsana Begum MP
