False Positives: the Prevent counter-extremism policy in healthcare (report launch)

July 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

We are excited to be able to invite you to an online launch of our latest report ‘False Positives: the Prevent counter-extremism policy in healthcare’.

This report brings together new research that seeks to shed light on the implications of the Prevent duty in UK health services.

Prevent is a controversial strand of the government’s counter-extremism strategy that obliges public service providers and workers to ‘have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’.

We will be hearing from a panel of experts on the subject, including:

  • Dr Hilary Aked – Research Manager at Medact and a writer and investigative researcher with a background in political sociology
  • Dr Mayura Deshpande – Consultant forensic psychiatrist, deputy Chief Medical Officer at the Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, and chair of the Ethics and Professional Practice Committee at the Royal College of Psychiatrists
  • Dr Tarek Younis – Cultural and critical clinical psychologist, and currently a Lecturer in Psychology at Middlesex University
  • Rosalind Comyn Policy and Campaigns Officer at Liberty, where she leads work across policing and counter-terrorism 

There will also be time for questions and discussion after the panellists’ talks.

Please RSVP below if you would like to join. We will send through joining details for the online call on the day of the event.
