Responding to reports of racism in Rose Hill
11.30 am Saturday 26th September.
We have been alerted to several incidents of racism, including abusing an Asian man as a "terrorist" and the ongoing intimidation a Nepalese family, and others, including threats of violence. Reports are that this has gone on for months and police continue to fail to act. The incidents have been carried out by the same group of young people. We want to show solidarity with those effected and mobilise a community response. We are looking for volunteers to help leaflet on the estate this Saturday to invite people to a meeting to plan a response, and send out a message that racism will not go unchallenged. Email if you can help.
7 PM Monday 28th September

Please accept this email as a formal request from the signatory campaign groups to Oxfordshire CCG to support the implementation of the Doctor's of the World "Safe Surgeries" scheme across Oxfordshire's GP practices.
Safe Surgeries is a network of GP practices committed to tackling barriers preventing access to primary care, and to promoting the health of everyone in their community – regardless of their nationality or immigration status. This could include pregnant women, survivors of trafficking, and people who have fled war. At a minimum, this means practices declaring themselves a ‘Safe Surgery’ for everyone and ensuring that lack of ID or proof of address, immigration status or language are not barriers to patient registration.
We believe the adoption of Safe Surgeries would help to counter the health inequalities and institutional racism highlighted in numerous reports and most recently expressed by the Black Lives Matter movement.
We hope that Oxfordshire CCG welcomes this opportunity to contribute to ensuring that no-one in Oxfordshire is excluded from GP services.
