NHS Employers has published an update to the racial equality infographic showing key findings from the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) 2020 report. These statistics give a picture of race equality within the NHS workforce.
We encourage organisations to review the data and supporting information and consider what this means in term of representation, staff experience and voice for staff from black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
Some useful actions for organisations and individuals have been included, which may be useful as all NHS organisations are required to demonstrate how they are addressing race equality issues in a range of staffing areas through the WRES.
