#48: Modern Slavery with Dr Rosie Riley

09 Mar 2020

On the podcast today I’m delighted to welcome along Dr Rosie Riley - a Clinical Fellow in Emergency Medicine, Founder of VITA Training and an NHS Clinical Entrepreneur.

Rosie is passionate about seeing an end to modern slavery. Over the past 5 years she has fought to transform the healthcare response, promoting the recognition of modern slavery as a major health challenge to individuals and societies.

In 2014, Rosie founded VITA, an organisation working to ensure victims presenting in healthcare settings can be safely identified and supported, whilst advancing and facilitating national modern slavery prevention, intervention and survivor care.

VITA training has now been delivered to more than 1,200 frontline NHS healthcare professionals and is being rolled out across London with a view to scale nationally.

On the episode today, we talk about the following:

  • Rosie's work with VITA
  • Becoming the national voice for health in modern slavery
  • Advocacy nationally with the Home Office and NHS England
  • Modern slavery and the role healthcare has to play

GUEST: Dr Rosie Riley

Rosie is passionate about seeing an end to modern slavery. Over the past 5 years she has fought to transform the healthcare response, promoting the recognition of modern slavery as a major health challenge to individuals and societies. In 2014, she founded VITA, an organisation working to ensure victims presenting in healthcare settings can be safely identified and supported, whilst advancing and facilitating national modern slavery prevention, intervention and survivor care. VITA training has now been delivered to more than 1,200 frontline NHS healthcare professionals and is being rolled out across London with a view to scale nationally. Whilst working as a doctor in the Emergency Department, Rosie advises key Government policy on modern slavery and has drafted the healthcare section of the Home Office “Modern Slavery Act 2015 - Statutory Guidance”. She is a core member of the NHS England Modern Slavery Network driving the national agenda within healthcare and is a member of the Modern Slavery Strategy and Implementation Group shaping Government support for victims. Whilst pursuing a career in General Practice, Rosie will continue growing VITA as a sustainable, evidence-based, survivor-focused organisation, until the NHS represents the gold standard healthcare response.
