Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES)

​The regional faculty are working on a new project looking at Equality, Diversity and Inclusion within the ACP workforce across the region. It is vital that we are committed in having a diverse and inclusive workforce that represents our communities / patients.​

The main purpose of the project is to look at the current data across NHS organisations/Primary care/PIVO on the backgrounds of the trainees on the programme and also helping those ‘aspiring’ ACPs reach their goal. We are looking at increasing the number of trainees from BAME background on ACP programmes.​

Race Equality within Advanced  Practice Survey

​The  Northeast  and  Yorkshire Regional   Faculty  for  Advancing  Practice and  University  of Huddersfield  would  like  to  collect  and  explore  data  in  regard  to  race  and  ethnicity  within  the Advanced Practice workforce with an aim to increase  opportunities  and improve experiences  for BAME staff. Since  2015,  The  Workforce Race Equality  Standard  (WRES)  has  mandated  NHS organisations to  demonstrate  progress  against  a  number  of  indicators  of  workforce  equality, including  a specific indicator  to address  the low levels of Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) representation  at senior  and board levels.​This project is led by Charlotte  Barker, who is currently undertaking  a secondment  with NEY HEE (Kindly  hosted by University  of Huddersfield). Ethical approval  has been  granted  by the University of Huddersfield Ethics Committee. The survey is now closed.

Programme Accreditation

​The Centre for Advancing Practice is in the process of accrediting advance level programmes in order to assure education quality across advanced practice and to provide practitioners with a route to recognition. The Northeast and Yorkshire Faculty for Advancing Practice is working collaboratively with the Centre to offer support and guidance to local universities who are considering applying for the accreditation process and those who are going through it. For more information on the accreditation criteria and process please visit the Centre for Advancing Practice’s website.

Clinical and academic support panel (CASP)
