Here to Stay: Celebrating the National Health Service’s Windrush Heritage

Across our Windrush Season, we will be adding photographs and other content to this gallery, to demonstrate and celebrate both the instant and the enduring effects of the Windrush Generation on our National Health Service. This week we begin with five beautiful portraits of women who have played critical roles in the National Health Service across their lifetimes. Each woman has generously shared parts of her life story with us, and all have intriguing connections -- direct, indirect, or trans-generational -- with the post-war migration of British subjects from her colonies and former colonies to take up jobs and make their lives rebuilding Britain from the destruction of World War Two. These portraits will also be shown at the University of Warwick and Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust exhibition on the University of Warwick campus. Please join us on 15 June, from 2-4 as we raise a glass to the Windrush Generation and the BAME heritage in the NHS! You can register your interest at the link below:
