Next day briefing: 2023 Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) report

On 18 March 2024, NHS England (NHSE) published the annual Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) data report. This year’s report includes new analysis on the experience of internationally recruited nurses, a welcome addition, that will help further support trusts’ work to achieve the goals of NHSE’s equality, diversity and inclusion improvement plan. NHSE recently published the results of the NHS Staff Survey 2023, however, the 2023 results have not been included in this most recent WRES report. Where possible, we have included 2023 staff survey data in this briefing, which outlines the report’s key findings and NHS Providers’ view.
