Details

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

Summary

“I’d been completely duped as well, I wasn’t exploited but I felt like I had been aiding trafficking.  Which I had been.  I think we all do, all the time”

Dr Rosie Riley

 

What another great and super interesting and open and honest conversation I had with our guest Dr Rosie Riley today – it really is fascinating and I hope that you enjoyed listening to this as much as I did recording it.

What an Incredible and growing organisation Rosie has created here and I definitely see this becoming the go to support and resource for many individuals and businesses alike to get more information in this area.  Modern slavery is a very important conversation for us all to have – we all have a part to play here.

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.

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.
