WDES and WRES data collection process for 2020


Employers will need to complete the data collection process for the Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES) and Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) from 6 July to 31 August 2020. 

NHS England and Improvement had previously advised that they had suspended the WDES and WRES data collection process for 2020 due to COVID-19. However, COVID-19 highlighted the critical importance of workforce equality, therefore WDES and WRES implementation, including data collections, will continue as usual this year.

If you have any queries, or require any clarification, please contact the WDES team at england.wdes@nhs.net or the WRES team at england.WRES@nhs.net
