Student doctor Ivan Beckley talks about the systemic bias in healthcare that he's witnessed during his education.
After an intriguing start, we welcome Professor Frank Keating, a Professor of Social Work and Mental Health in the Department of Social Work at Royal Holloway University of London, and Rianna Walcott, a LAHP-funded PhD candidate at Kings College London and co-editor of an anthology about BAME mental health, The Colour of Madness. We also welcome Jacob Diggle, Head of Strategy & Insight from the charity Mind to provide a response from their organisation to what is said.

WhatsApp chat groups are fertile soil for misinformation to spread among older adults, which is particularly damaging during a pandemic. Rianna Walcott finds out how best to counter fearmongering advice.
