BME leadership programme

At West London NHS Trust, we don’t just accept difference – we actively celebrate it and support it for the benefit of our staff, our patients and our community. We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.

Our goal is to increase the number of BME (black and minority ethnic) people in senior management by 10% over the next three years.
