Workforce race equality standard data collection for CCGs
For the first time this year, CCGs will be required to submit data for national analysis and publication in the same way as NHS trusts.
Guidance and timelines have been sent to CCG accountable officers. The NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) was mandated in April 2015. It aims to ensure employees from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds have equal access to career opportunities and receive fair treatment in the workplace.
