Amplifying Voices, Mending Divides

M20211012 002 SJ5 0354

We are committed to confronting inequality and creating an inclusive organisation where all our staff and patients can thrive, no matter their background.

In August 2021 we joined 450 organisations across the region in committing to Root Out Racism. Amplifying Voices, Mending Divides is a new book from LTHT staff that takes a significant step along this path to achieving our vision.

Amplifying Voices

This new anthology brings together fourteen contributors from across the Trust and beyond, featuring a diverse range of voices from ethnic minority and white backgrounds, speaking about their lived experiences of racism.

Mending Divides

The challenge of this anthology of stories is clear - what are we doing about racism at LTHT? Through empathy, listening, learning, and sharing our experiences, we hope to start inclusive conversations across the Trust, the wider NHS, and beyond.

Our vision for the anthology

It's in your hands

We want everyone at LTHT to have had the chance to read this book - whether through listening to readings from the authors, loaning a copy from the LTHT library, or starting a reading group with colleagues. Patients, visitors and partners can also reserve a copy of the book.
