Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) group Anti-Racism Statement

  • Latest news

The WRES group's letter is in line with the London Anti-Racism Statement and signatories including London’s commissioners.

Londonwide Local Medical Committees is a committed member of the WRES.  The WRES recently discussed the Anti-Racism Statement for London which has been launched and shared with ICB-ICS chief executives across London. The statement can be found on the London People Board webpage and can be used by healthcare providers to highlight their commitment to both identifying and taking action on racism and inequalities, and supplements and supports the WRES Framework which was launched earlier this year

At Londonwide LMCs, we are proud of the diversity and inclusivity found in LMCs and general practice across the Capital, and will continue to listen, learn and work to help eliminate discrimination, address racism, and advance equality of opportunity. We want to facilitate discussions on effects of race and ethnicity on GPs’ experiences and consider interventions aimed at addressing the issues.

To that end:

  • As investors in people, we ensure and actively foster a culture of inclusion, equality and diversity at all levels. We are also committed to supporting our collaborators across the NHS to doing the same.
  • As an organisation, we welcome having difficult conversations and becoming better educated about race and racial prejudice.
  • As representatives of a diverse group of practices across London, we are committed to ensuring that all staff are supported, protected and developed regardless of their race.
  • As the London voice of general practice, we are supportive of, and committed to, the implementation of measures that will improve staff safety and well-being.
