In July 2014, the NHS confirmed the introduction of a Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES). Find out more here

Effective from April 2015, the WRES establishes Workforce Indicators and associated metrics against which NHS organisations must collect and analyse data.  This analysis must then inform appropriate action and intervention to address any shortcomings between the relative treatment and experience of White and Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) staff.
