Oxfordshire NHS Trust told to improve equality and diversity

Health bosses have been told to improve equality and diversity in the county’s hospital workforce, according to the health watchdog.

Following a recent review into the leadership at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH), the Care Quality Commission (CQC) found black and ethnic minority workers were more likely to endure bullying and harassment in the workplace and were less likely to be promoted than their white colleagues.

The CQC also noted a lack of diversity at board level, which was ‘not reflective of the ethnically diverse communities served by the trust or the staff who worked for the trust’.
