    Abstract

    The matter of racism within the NHS has been aired many times over the years. The problem has been particularly prominent in the area of mental health, with a recent legal enquiry into the death of a black psychiatric patient talking of the ‘abscess’ of ‘institutional racism’, which was ‘a blot on the good name of the NHS’ (Gould, 2004).
