Resources - Understand the jargon

The NHS 'reforms' are often dressed up in jargon - here are some serious (and not-so serious) guides to help you understand the language.

Decode NHS jargon - a glossary by Patients 4 the NHS, and another on p29 onwards of the TUC guide.

 

 

Learn ‘How to speak Lansley’ from John Lister and how to see through ‘NHS management jargon’ from Professor Alan Maynard.

Book: The Sex Lives of African Women

Join Black feminist author Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah to talk about her book 'The Sex Lives of African Women' in which she features the stories of more than 30 women giving us rare insights into how they navigate, negotiate and enjoy sex, sexuality and relationships across generations and borders.

Among them are monogamous, polyamorous, kinky, queer, transgender and celibate stories. Nana will be joined by the African feminist writer and editor Rosebell Kagumire – who reviewed the book for openDemocracy. More speakers TBC.

Join us on 5 August 2021 at 5pm UK time/12pm EDT for a free, live discussion as we explore this topic with an expert panel
