NHS Workforce Disability Equality Standard

NHS Workforce Disability Equality Duty

NHS England requires all NHS Trust to explore whether or not they are fully achieving disability equality in the workplace. 

In order to do this we collect and collate data on whether or not our staff declare themselves as disabled. The data is collected as part of the NHS Disability Equality Standard and includes the consideration of recruitment and selection, entry into the capability process and staff experiences of harassment, bullying, abuse, discrimination, equal opportunities and reasonable adjustments.

The first document below provides a summary of our data along with our actions for September 2019 to August 2020. The second document below provides the actual data submitted to NHS England in August 2019.
