In partnership with the WRES team at NHS England, we are holding a series of events for chairs and chief executives across the country designed to initiate and progress a discussion on workforce race equality within the NHS.

Led by Owen Williams, chief executive of Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, the roundtable will provide senior leaders with a comprehensive briefing and information to take forward work on this challenging agenda for an inclusive NHS. This will include examples of best practice and details of the support available from NHS England.

Implementing the workforce race equality standard (WRES) is a requirement for NHS commissioners and NHS healthcare providers including independent organisations, through the NHS standard contract.

The evidence is clear that workforce race equality is critical to patient care, safety and outcomes and that it also leads to the efficient running of the NHS. The evidence is also clear that success in this area is dependent on demonstrable and committed leadership.
This event will take place at Confed18, the NHS Confederation's annual conference and exhibition.

Much will be written in the coming weeks and months about how the new NHS Long Term Plan is regarded nationally by the various parts of the health service – from think tanks to membership bodies to Royal Colleges. What is perhaps more important, explains Michael Wood, local growth advisor at the NHS Confederation, is how it is seen on the ground by external, local partners. After all, there isn’t much the NHS can achieve in the plan that doesn’t need their support, resources or input
