Reporting on equality and diversity

About us

More in this section

As part of our duties we must collect a range of data and publish this.

Equality impact assessments

Equality impact assessments (EIA) help to ensure that our policies, functions and services are not discriminatory. We have a legal duty to assess whether an EIA is needed and to publish the report and action plan on our website.

Workforce monitoring

Under the Equality Act 2010, employers need to set out arrangements for how they will meet specific employment duties. We collect a range of employment data to monitor diversity and inequalities and publish the results in our monitoring reports below. 

Workforce Race Equality Standard

The aim of the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) is to improve the experience of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) staff in the workplace. This includes employment, promotion and training opportunities. It also applies to BME people who want to work in the NHS. Additionally, this applies to BME staffs’ experience of the employee relations process. This can be achieved by taking positive action to eliminate discrimination, harassment and unfair treatment of BME staff in the workplace.
