An Audible Original investigation into racism in medical treatment.
Ivan Beckley is about to become a fully-qualified doctor in the UK. But he’s not convinced that healthcare works for everyone equally.
In this series he uncovers one of the biggest and most insidious injustices in modern medicine. Fixing it could save thousands of lives every year. And yet it’s invisible, unless it directly affects you.
Statistics show that black and people of colour have worse health outcomes, and die more often than white people, across many fields of medicine and variety of illnesses.
Ivan’s search for answers takes him to the roots of modern medicine. He busts myths, debunks stereotypes and calls out misinformation that have existed for centuries and remain sadly very much alive today.
