Freedom of Information Request: 0938 2020/21

I am getting in touch with regards to black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) group’s staff networks within the NHS. I have a few simple questions that I would like to ask under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

  • Does the trust have a BAME staff network or something similarly named?


  • If the answer to Q1 is yes, who are its leaders (e.g., chair, co-chair)?

We have two co-chairs – Beverley Baker and Olga Leach-Walters

  • In addition to Q2, does it have a sponsor if yes please provide the name?

Yes, the Chief Nurse

  • Could you please provide the contact details for the leaders of the trust’s BAME staff network (or similarly named)? This should be, at minimum, an email address

Staff email addresses follow the format:

Olga Leach-Walters

Beverley Baker
