Equality body to scrutinise racial inequality of workers in health and social care

The Equality and Human Rights Commission have announced an enquiry into ‘Racial inequality of ethnic minority workers in lower paid roles in health and social care’

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) say that they will seek to understand the experiences of people working in the health and adult social care sectors, as well as looking into the institutions that commission and run these services such as the NHS, local authorities, umbrella bodies and private sector firms that deliver care in the home and community.
There is to be an external advisory panel that will help to guide the work.  EHRC will be calling for  evidence in the coming weeks
