Workplace equality reports

Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is committed to challenging prejudice and discrimination wherever this affects our service users and staff and making equality and diversity integral to our organisational culture.

We have adopted the NHS Equality Delivery System, a framework to help us continually improve our performance on equality.

The Workplace Disability Equality Standard (WDES) and Workplace Race Equality Standard (WRES) reports designed to promote equality and diversity within workplaces, particularly focusing on disability and race, respectively.

Both WDES and WRES reports are valuable tools enabling Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust  to foster inclusive workplaces and promoting equality of opportunity for all of our employees, regardless of their disability status or racial background. Our aim is to create a more equitable and supportive environment where all of our team can contribute and succeed.


Workplace Disability Equality Standard (WDES)

  • WDES is a tool used to assess and improve the equality of opportunities for disabled employees within Moorfields Eye Hospital
  • It typically involves evaluating various aspects of the workplace, including recruitment, retention, promotion, training, and accessibility, to identify areas where improvements can be made.
  • The aim is to create an inclusive work environment where individuals with disabilities have equal access to opportunities and can thrive professionally.
  • We use our WDES reports to track progress, set targets, and implement strategies to enhance disability equality in the workplace.


Workplace Race Equality Standard (WRES)

  • WRES is a framework developed to address racial inequalities and promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
  • It focuses on assessing and addressing disparities in recruitment, career progression, and treatment of employees from different racial and ethnic backgrounds.
  • WRES aims to ensure that all of our employees, regardless of their race or ethnicity, are treated fairly and have equal opportunities for advancement and development.
  • We use WRES reports to monitor progress, identify areas for improvement, and implement initiatives to promote race equality and diversity within the workforce.
