The training of staff on equality and diversity is a matter for individual National Health Service organisations. Many organisations include race equality in mandatory training sessions as part of their governance arrangements.

NHS staff are encouraged to refer to and read good practice guidance online. Training programmes, such as the Workforce Race Equality Standards experts programme, are nationally funded. NHS England and NHS Improvement also provide webinars on equality, diversity and inclusion which can be accessed by NHS staff.
