There have been a number of reports that have raised the profile of race inequalities over time.

Roger Kline's 'Snowy White Peaks' in 2014 showed that there was a need for diverse leadership and staff representative of the communities they serve, otherwise there is a negative impact on patient care.

The  work of Jeremy Dawson and Michael West in 'Making the difference' (2015) made the NHS focus on the culture of organisations and how we need to have an engaged workforce. Lack of engagement leads to poor patient care.

The Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES)  has helped introduce metrics into NHS organisations to begin to measure the statistics that can help the conversations to redress race inequalities and help to provide great patient care, staff engagement and diverse leadership. There are numerous resources that can be found on the WRES weblink.
