A major new initiative to improve race equality in the NHS and better draw on the talents of its workforce was launched in April 2015, with the introduction of a Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES), mandated by the NHS Standard Contract and to be inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This approach draws on UK and international evidence of other successful approaches to tackling discrimination and is introduced in the expectation that it will have greater likelihood of success than previous NHS efforts. It is intended that this approach should complement existing efforts such as the Equality Delivery Scheme (EDS2) and may be extended to other protected characteristics.
