Yvonne Coghill has Stated that Cultural Transformation is Required if Racial Inequality is Going to be Tackled

The health service needs to undergo a huge cultural transformation if they want to become more inclusive for staff and they also need to tackle more diverse backgrounds too. This is especially the case when you look at the people who are in charge of the programme.

An exclusive interview has been done and Yvonne Coghill has been facing ongoing challenges with discrimination and that senior NHS leaders are more than committed. She has highlighted the process and she even stated that it is the best time ever for people who are from a black background to become a nurse or even a doctor in the UK. The fact is that they only have 10 BME chief nurses in the country though and this could indicate that there is still a lot of work to be done.

The creation of the WRES happened to be sparked by a seminal report. This was published in the year 2014 by the Middlesex University. Roger Kline suggested that the NHS was being institutionally racist. At the end of the day, if you work in homecare or in private nursing, you need to remember that the percentage of BME staff who were experiencing harassment, abuse or even bullying rose from a total of 26% in the year 2017 to 28% in the year 2018. 15% of staff also reported personal instances of discrimination from either a work colleague or even a manager. This is up 14% from the previous year. Of course, this may be even worse if you take into account the results from the Nursing Times. They suggest that two-thirds of nurses have observed some kind of racial abuse and that this cannot be stood for at all.
