BAME Survey 2022

Dear Colleagues,

The Northern Ireland Practice and Education Council for Nursing and Midwifery (NIPEC) has been appointed by the Chief Nursing Officer in Northern Ireland (NI), as the lead organisation to monitor and review the access to education for the Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Nursing and Allied Health Professions (AHP) workforce in Health and Social Care (HSC) Trusts. The survey questions are derived from the recommendations from the Task and Finish Group chaired by Professor Sonja McIlfatrick, Ulster University and the workshop to agree next steps, held in December 2021. The survey questions will be sent to HSC Trust Executive Directors of Nursing/AHPs and their Nursing Workforce Leads and the Heads of School of the Approved Education Institutions (AEIs).

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

This survey will close at 5pm on Friday 17 June 2022. NIPEC will submit a report of the results of the survey to the Chief Nursing Officer.

Thank you for taking time to complete the survey.

Linda Kelly
Chief Executive
NIPEC
