The NHS has one of the most ethnically diverse workforces in the public sector. However, year after year, staff from ethnic minority backgrounds report worse experiences in terms of their lives and careers, when compared with white staff. In addition, people from an ethnic minority background are under-represented in senior positions in the NHS.
The King’s Fund has published a new report, Workforce race inequalities and inclusion in NHS providers, looking at how NHS organisations are addressing race inequalities and inclusion in the workforce. The report is accompanied by the stories of 12 people from ethnic minority backgrounds who share their personal experience of working in the NHS.
