Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES)
From 1 April 2015, all NHS organisations are required to demonstrate through the nine point Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) metric how they are addressing race equality issues in a range of staffing areas and develop an action plan to address any identified shortfalls, for review and monitoring through the Equality & Diversity Committee.
Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES)
The Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES) is mandated for all NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts from April 2019. The WDES is based on a series of measures linked to the experience of disabled staff in the NHS. It comprises of ten metrics which are all drawn from existing data sources (recruitment dataset, ESR, NHS Staff Survey, HR data) with the 6 exception of one; metric 9b which asks for narrative evidence of actions taken, to be written into the WDES annual report.
Equality Delivery System
The EDS is an improvement tool for patients, staff and leaders of the NHS. It supports NHS organisations in England - in active conversations with patients, public, staff, staff networks, community groups and trade unions - to review and develop their approach in addressing health inequalities through three domains: Services, Workforce and Leadership. It is driven by data, evidence, engagement and insight. You can view our EDS action plan on our equality home page.
