Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES)

Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) - Introduction
This annual reporting process allows the Trust to compare the experiences of staff from Black and Minority Ethnic Groups (BME) compared to white staff. The WRES has been mandated by NHS England by the Standard NHS Contract.
 
Within the WRES are nine core indicators that the Trust collates and publishes information on its performance. Within the reports are actions plans for addressing areas of improvement.
 
The nine indicators are:
