Description

The BME Staff Network will be for everyone who identifies their ethnicity as other than White British. The role of the network will be to:

  • Support and enable BME staff to feel that they are part of ,and have a vital role to play in, our hospitals

  • Allow staff to raise their concerns in a safe and confidential environment, and be able to discuss issues affecting BME staff with key decision makers

  • Assist in formulating new, and reviewing existing, policies and procedures to ensure that they have race equality at the core

  • Assist the Trust in meeting its statutory obligations under the Equality Act 2010

  • Assist in the identification of training needs, advise on the provision of courses to meet those needs, and on the content of courses with equality and diversity implications as they relate to BME staff

  • Provide an opportunity for staff to update each other on local and national policy and developments.

The event will include a talk from Yvonne Coghill, Director of Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES), NHS England.

For further information, please contact Shabir Abdul, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Manager, via email: shabirabdul@nhs.net or call 07833 239561.
