Although national healthcare arm's-length bodies (ALBs) are not required to implement the NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) and report data against its indicators, in the spirit of transparency and continuous improvement, we are one of six organisations to publish our WRES report data. This is the first time we have submitted our data for the report.
