Bullying or Harassment in the NHS: a Racism Dimension? (BBC News / NHS England EDC)

Summary

According to the NHS Equality and Diversity Council (EDC), black and ethnic minority (BME) staff working in the NHS are more likely to report being bullied or harassed than employees who are white.

The NHS England EDC report presents a range of evidence indicating that BME staff in the NHS experience less favourable treatment and poorer opportunities. The NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES), introduced in 2015, is intended to promote improvements to workforce racial equality.
