Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES)
NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard
The NHS England Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) is a mandatory framework which requires NHS Employers to demonstrate progress against nine workforce equality indicators.
Four of the indicators relate specifically to workforce data; four are based upon data from the national NHS Staff survey questions, and one considers Blackm Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) representation at Board level. The WRES aims to highlight differences between the experience and treatment of White and BAME staff with a view to closing the experience gap in those metrics.
At St George’s we have been working to improve the experiences of all of our staff. We are pleased to have made progress in a number of areas, however there is still a great deal more to be done. We are committed to building on the improvements that we have made and will continue to transition these initiatives into our mainstream programmes of work.
