This event will explore the All-Party Parliamentary Group inquiry into the "avoidable deaths and failures of care for Sickle Cell Patients in Secondary Care". The report, made in collaboration with the Sickle Cell Society, found "serious care failings... and evidence of attitudes underpinned by racism".

John James OBE and CEO of the Sickle Cell Society will join Andy Houghton, Haematology Advanced Clinical Nurse Specialist and Dr Cat Lyndsay in giving talks to explore the report, inform of the latest medical advances and raise awareness of Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia before joining a panel discussion including Q&A with representation from the Liverpool Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia group.

The Museum of Liverpool explores the barriers and inequalities that have historically existed in health provision and individual experience to help us understand the present. It also follows Liverpool's pivotal role in the history of public health research and practice, and examines why this is. The Museum of Liverpool is therefore proud to host this event which is aimed at family, local and medical communities wishing to further explore and learn about this critically important issue.  

Although the talks will be aimed at adults, there will be activities for younger children in the same room to support adults wishing to attend. Refreshments provided.

Tickets available to book from 1 October.
