Today is Windrush Day which marks the arrival of HMS Windrush in 1948 from the Caribbean and the massive contribution the Caribbean community has made to the NHS and the public sector, both then and now.

HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury Docks on this day, 22 June. This first generation of workers had been invited to the UK to help rebuild it after World War II.
