The NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) was made available to the NHS from April 2015, following sustained engagement and consultation with key stakeholders including a widespread of NHS organisations across England. The WRES is included in the NHS standard contract, and since July 2015, NHS trusts have been producing and publishing their WRES data on an annual basis.

The main purpose of the WRES is:

a. to help local, and national, NHS organisations (and other organisations providing NHS services) to review their data against the nine WRES indicators,

b. to produce action plans to close the gaps in workplace experience between white and Black and Ethnic Minority (BME) staff, and,

c. to improve BME representation at the Board level of the organisation.

Our obligations and commitment

As an NHS Provider organisation, Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Trust (DBTH) will provide an annual report to our Coordinating Commissioner at both Doncaster CCG and Bassetlaw CCG outlining our progress on the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES). In addition,as with all NHS Trusts, we will publish additional annual statistics to demonstrate progress against the nine indicators.
