Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES)

The Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) is a set of metrics that requires all NHS organisations with contracts over £200,000 to demonstrate progress against a number of indicators of race equality.

NHS England has mandated the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) into the 2015/16 NHS Standard Contact.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.

 

These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
