Workforce Race Equality Standard

This page provides The Royal Marsden’s submission against the nine indicators of the Workforce Race Equality Standard.

The Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) which launched in 2015 aims to highlight any difference of treatment or experience between white and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff within the NHS. The WRES comprises nine indicators. Four of these are based on workforce data, four are based on data from the national staff survey and one indicator considers Board composition. 

The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust welcomes the opportunity that the WRES has provided to assess and monitor race equality performance and has used the WRES findings to identify areas of good practice and to take actions to address areas where improvement is required.  The Trust works closely with the REACH (Race Ethnicity and Cultural Heritage) Forum (formerly known as the BAME Forum) on the WRES. It is encouraging to note progress against the majority of the indicators since the WRES was launched in 2015. 

The Technical Guidance provided by NHS England has been followed to ensure that our information meets the requirements set out.
