Equality and diversity: Race

Our diversity is our strength, and we celebrate that. General practice is a diverse profession, caring for diverse patient populations. We want to seek out and change the inequalities that exist both within our organisation and within general practice, so you and all of our workforce are able to achieve your potential.
