What is institutional racism?

  • Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff face more bullying, harassment and abuse compared to white staff in over 80% of NHS Trusts
  • White applicants are more likely to be appointed from shortlisting compared to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic applicants
  • Ethnic background continues to be the most common reason for discrimination
  • The report itself highlights the ethnicity pay gap in the NHS and calls for a strategic review at a national level.
