Workforce Race Equality Standard report

A Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) report has been published by NHS England and is mandatory.  It came into force on 1 April 2015.

The Standard requires every NHS organisation to publish workforce data showing the experience of BME staff compared to White staff in terms of recruitment and selection, promotion, and retention.  It also requires us to publish data based on the staff survey in relation to bullying and harassment of BME staff and White Staff, and also whether the Board’s membership is ‘broadly representative of the population they service’.
