Racially aggravated attack

Tuesday, 28 July 2020

We are incredibly saddened that a member of our staff at Southmead Hospital was the victim of a hit and run last week.

The police believe this to have been a racially aggravated attack and we are horrified that this is something that has happened to one of our friends and colleague.

Racism, in any form, has no place in our society and that an attack such as this can happen is shocking.

We have been speaking with the family to make sure the individual is ok and being well looked after, and are supporting the police in any way we can with their investigations.

We would encourage anyone with information to come forwards and share that with the police.
