BBC Survey on BAME doctors during the coronavirus pandemic

BBC News is carrying out research into the experiences of BAME doctors during the coronavirus pandemic, given that many of them have been disproportionately impacted by the virus. We are interested in finding out how their experiences compare during the first, second and current waves of the virus, and whether doctors feel better protected now as a result of Covid-19 workplace risk assessments. They also ask about the human toll of the virus on doctors’ mental and physical health, and whether doctors have experienced bullying and discrimination during the pandemic.

They have drawn up a short, anonymous questionnaire which they are inviting BAME doctors to complete. The data will be held in accordance with GDPR rules and will not be forwarded on within or outside of the BBC. The findings will be used to inform a report for the BBC's national TV and Radio News programmes, as well as their online platforms.

The deadline for submitting responses is 23.59 on 31 January 2021. The survey can be accessed here: http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/5DNO52/

Should you require any further information, or would like to get in touch (in confidence) about your experiences, please contact Amara Sophia Elahi at the BBC: amarasophia.elahi@bbc.co.uk

Thank you for your time.

Development of a Core Outcome Set of Wellbeing Measures for Doctors

If you agree that continually measuring how burnt out we are in these challenging times is not going to improve doctors’ wellbeing, please could you complete the research survey below, which is part of an ISRCTN registered study from the Centre for Workforce Wellbeing. Taking part will help develop an operational definition of what wellbeing is, and a core outcome set of measures of wellbeing. With them we can recognise the optimum conditions to survive and thrive described in various policy documents and can share how we achieve them. The survey is anonymous and takes 20 minutes and we would be incredibly grateful if you would complete it. Here is the link:
