“Doing great work in a great place to work“
Not all disability is visible and I admit, in the past, I often tried to hide mine. Now I’m keen to get us talking more openly about the barriers we face. Over time, celebrating Clinical School staff diversity will improve our own wellbeing and that of patients who come here.Alison Dunning, Reader in Molecular Cancer Genetics, Department of Oncology
