Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) Conference in Lincolnshire

Black and minority ethnic (BME) staff make up nearly a fifth of the total NHS workforce, and yet we know that the opportunities and experiences that they receive do not correspond with the values upon which the NHS stands. Research and data show that compared to their white counterparts, BME staff are more likely to:

  • be discriminated against in recruitment, especially in the transition from shortlisting to recruitment;

  • be seriously under-represented within the NHS at senior managerial and board positions;

  • enter the disciplinary process;

  • experience discrimination, harassment and abuse from colleagues and their managers at work; and are much less likely to believe that their trust provides equal opportunities for career progression.

Evidence suggests such treatment exists where there are relatively small numbers of BME staff, as well as where there are larger proportions of BME staff in the workforce. Such treatment impacts adversely not just on BME staff, but also upon organisational effectiveness, and patient experience and care.

This conference will cover the impact of WRES nationally and with the Lincolnshire NHS Trusts.
