Non-BAME Galenicals members cannot understand the lived experience of racism, but we must all stand with our BAME colleagues to support them. The University has a ‘Report and Support’ tool for all instances of racism and this should be used to report any incidents of discrimination. At Galenicals, we will always believe our BAME members and support them to report racism using this tool.

The Report and Support service is run by the University of Bristol, to report instances anonymously or to request contact from an advisor for support. They also have a range of supportive resources on different areas such as discrimination, bullying and mental health. This tool however, only covers discrimination faced in the University. If you are an undergraduate medical student and are concerned about something that occurs on placement you should contact your Year Lead and/or your Academy Dean.
