The Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) sets out a series of metrics drawn from workforce data and the NHS staff survey, comparing white and BME staff in areas such as:

• Disciplinary
• Access to continuing professional development
• Representation on the Board

The WRES was created by NHS England and all Trusts are expected to make year on year progress against the metrics.
