NHS to Spend Millions Creating ‘Woke’ Diversity and Inclusion Jobs

The NHS is creating hundreds of new positions focused on diversity and inclusion, despite Government calls to reduce bureaucracy and increase efficiency in healthcare. The Telegraph has the story.

Officials at NHS England have drawn up plans for three new departments called ‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusion’, ‘People and Culture’ and ‘People and Communities’, with 244 posts across the teams.

The Health Secretary is understood to be “frustrated” by the move and intends to summon health officials to demand explanations for the creation of large departments enforcing “woke doctrines”.

Ministers have repeatedly promised to crack down on bureaucracy, with NHS England ordered to cut its total workforce by up to 40%.

Earlier this year, Steve Barclay, the Health Secretary, ordered NHS England to get rid of specific diversity and inclusion roles, as part of efforts to “ensure good value for money”.

The latest move has emerged ahead of the first joint strikes by junior doctors and consultants which NHS bosses have warned will cancel almost all appointments.

NHS waiting lists in England are also at a record high, with 7.7 million people – around one in seven of the population – waiting for treatment.
