Black History Month - Our Staff

From 2020 to 2021, we have seen and felt pain like no other, and we have felt joy and love upon reuniting with our loved ones. Our strength is in our unity to lighten the load that we all share. Yet we can’t become what we do not see, and what we have within UHP are resilient, tenacious and kind individuals who have gone above and beyond.

During October it is common to champion international figures but this year, in honour of Black History Month and for those who have suffered from the pandemic, we asked colleagues from all areas of our Trust to nominate an ethnically diverse colleague, or ally, who has impacted them in a positive, meaningful and memorable way, or has done something they feel deserves recognition.

We really want to bring forward those who are championing the values of being a great colleague and making a difference in the workplace.
