Abstract

An exploration of the experiences of British BME mental health nurses and how they perceive their career prospects in the NHS. The aims of this project was influenced by reports, such as The “snowy white peaks” of NHS (Kline, 2014) which indicated that there is a disproportionately low number of ethnic minority nurses who occupy senior Bands, i.e. Band 7-9. Kline’s (2014) report also highlighted concerns that there is a lack of ethnic minority nurses in Trust Board positions. This project seeks to further explore, in which ways might Equality & Diversity Policies, implemented in Mental Health NHS Trusts, address these factors?
