Workforce Race Equality Standard

In April 2015 NHS England introduced a Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) across all NHS organisations, including 9 indicators to monitor outcomes and the effectiveness of actions taken to improve them.

NECS is fully supportive of the approach. As well as supporting our customers to collate their WRES data, we publish our own WRES report.

This report helps us to understand the progress we are making in ensuring that all employees, regardless of their ethnic background, have equal access to career opportunities and fair treatment in the workplace.

Workforce Race Equality Strategy 2023
We foster a sense of belonging in everything we do, which is why we collaborated with our NECS colleagues to create our Workforce Race Equality Strategy 2023.

The strategy cements our commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and our plans to make our organisation more inclusive.

The Workforce Race Equality Strategy 2023 includes actions across three key areas (Prevention and Support, Recruitment and Retention, Training and Development) and measures of success. These actions will support us to make further progress.
