On Monday 3rd December my colleagues and I hosted a major conference at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester. The purpose of the day was to hear from stakeholder speakers and invite discussion among NHS Equality Leads about how best to assure the continuing legacy of equalities work in the NHS after March 2013, when the existing Strategic Health Authorities and Primary Care Trusts are disbanded and many existing managers become redundant or move to other roles.
The day needed a curtain-raiser in order to set the scene. Rather than inflict a Powerpoint presentation on the audience, I undertook to try and tell the story of where we had come from in a short video. The result is "Six Years in Six Minutes"
