Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) indicators that NHS organisations mustĀ demonstrate progress against.



There are nine WRES indicators. Four of the indicators focus on workforce data, four are based on data from the national NHS Staff Survey questions, and one indicator focuses upon BME representation on Boards. The WRES highlights any differences between the experience and treatment of White staff and BME staff in the NHS with a view to closing those gaps through the development and implementation of action plans focused upon continuous improvement over time.
