Employers of Black, Asian and minority ethnic dispensing team members are encouraged to tackle discrimination in their workplaces.
Published to coincide with Black History Month, the Pharmacy Workforce Race Equality Standard (PWRES) report aims to begin the process of creating an evidence base to reveal racism, discrimination and inequality in career progression in the NHS pharmacy workforce for the benefit of the wider NHS system.
The standard encourages action at all levels of the NHS, and for employers, via the following tools:
- NHS Civility and Respect Toolkit: Supporting our staff: a toolkit to promote cultures of civility and respect
- Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
- General Pharmaceutical Council: Inclusion and Diversity Strategy.
