Abstract

Research by Roger Kline found that minorities were over 3 times less likely to get hired for a post at NHS Trusts in England than white applicants. Black applicants who were shortlisted were nearly twice less likely than white applicants to be appointed, indicating significant discriminatory hiring practices. Given some of the issues with actually getting data on hiring practices, he argues that it is essential that good data is collected by the Trusts so that they can grasp the problem at hand. Staff also need to be engaged with and hiring standards set and enforced.
