BME Supplement cover

In this week’s issue we exclusively reveal the shortfall of nurses needed to comply with new staffing guidance, with some hospitals providing a third less nursing care per occupied bed than their peers. Plus:

  • BME Pioneers: celebrating the people who have achieved excellence in their roles and championed inclusion in its broadest sense
  • Some patients could see delays to treatment as the waiting list for elective operations grows by 260,000 on last year
  • One hospital’s ambitious plan to cut admissions by 12,000 within three years
  • The chief executive of the Office of Fair Trading rejects calls for changes in the law governing hospital mergers
  • Yvonne Coghill of the NHS Leadership Academy argues that well meaning BME initiatives have not fully understood the complexities of race and equality
