Diversity and inclusion

We are committed to championing and promoting equal opportunity.

Everyone has a right to be treated with dignity and respect, with equal opportunities and without discrimination, irrespective of their background. We are working hard to ensure that we better reflect the communities we serve.

We have been looking at an organisational diagnosis of the NHS Blood and Transplant Colindale centre in order to better understand our working environment for colleagues.

We commissioned an independent report and are taking action to make our organisation more diverse and inclusive.

Workforce Race Equality Standard

The NHS England 'Workforce Race Equality Standard' (WRES) requires all NHS organisations to measure, demonstrate and publish their annual race equality improvements for each of the WRES indicators.

The national focus on these nine aspects of workforce race equality provides a great opportunity for NHS organisations to work together on specific interventions and to share good practice.

It brings together and strengthens our equality measures from the last three years, and involved a wide range of people in its development. This included the views of our colleagues, donors, patients and customers on key business priorities for equality and diversity, community engagement, employment and service delivery.
