Never let racism hold back your career

Anoop Raghunath Charge nurse in the emergency assessment unit, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

As a migrant nurse, I used my initiative to create professional development opportunities to further my nursing journey

I came to the UK in 2011, two years after qualifying as a nurse in India and having passed my IELTS (international English language testing system) exam. I had only worked in a small hospital in Kerala before coming to the UK and did not have much nursing experience.
