THE NETWORK FOR BLACK, ASIAN AND ETHNIC MINORITY NEDS & CHAIRS IN THE NHS HEALTH SYSTEM
The Seacole Group is the national network of Non Executive Directors & Chairs in the health system and we have one vision:
That NHS Boards reflect the ethnic diversity of patients and communities they serve.
Mary Jane Seacole (née Grant; 1805 – 14 May 1881) was a British-Jamaican business woman and nurse who set up the "British Hotel" behind the lines during the Crimean War. She described this as "a mess-table and comfortable quarters for sick and convalescent officers", and provided succour for wounded servicemen on the battlefield.
