PREVENT in the NHS – Medact Manchester
March 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Medact Manchester for the next evening talk in our Medact lecture series. We are looking forward to hearing from Dr Tarek Younis, a cultural psychologist and Newton postdoctoral research fellow at UCL. He will be discussing his current project, which concentrates on the political responses of healthcare professionals to Prevent.
Prevent is part of the government’s counter-terrorism strategy, and places a statutory duty on many professionals working in public services – including schools, universities and the NHS – to report people whom they suspect of being at risk of “radicalisation”.
7pm at University Place 6.210, Oxford Road.
There will be plenty of time for discussion after the talk, so please join us.
