BME Leadership Network

Strengthening the voice of black and minority ethnic leaders.

The BME Leadership Network exists to strengthen the voice of NHS black and minority ethnic (BME) leaders and to support NHS organisations to meet the needs of all communities.

We meet quarterly and we aim to:

  • improve understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion and publish the benefits to help deliver better care for all
  • improve and sustain the number of BME leaders working in the NHS
  • profile the diverse range of BME leaders delivering solutions across the health and care system.

The network is supported by the AHSN Network, NHS Leadership Academy and the Royal College of Nursing.

Who can join?

Formal members of the network will be leaders from BME backgrounds, while we encourage non-BME leaders to become supporters. If you're interested in joining or supporting the network, head to our membership page.
