Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES)

NHS England introduced the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) in 2015. The WRES requires NHS organisations to demonstrate progress against a number of indicators of workforce equality.

The WRES makes sure all healthcare staff are treated fairly and with respect. It is included in the NHS standard contract and is a requirement for both NHS commissioners and NHS providers.

Further information can be found here on NHS England’s WRES webpage

We expect to publish our first WRES report sometime in 2022-23 – the findings will be published here in due course.
