Statement about racist abuse of England players

14 July 2021

Jo Farrar, Chief Executive of Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, has responded to racist comments about England players on social media, following the final of Euro 2020.

“We at Kingston Hospital are appalled by racist abuse of players who brought England much pride and togetherness in difficult times.

In the NHS, we do not tolerate racism, or abuse of any kind. We will continue to work with our partners to make our communities feel safe, protected and listened to, recognising the richness and diversity of the communities we serve.

We see all the great things our colleagues and communities are achieving, their talent and voice for what’s right, and it makes us feel we can make things better together.”

The Metropolitan Police are ready to help anyone who has been affected by racist behaviour and violence. For more information on how to spot a hate crime, report it, or get help, support and advice visit their hate crime pages. If you feel in any danger, always call 999.
