White doctors are three times more likely to be picked for senior hospital jobs than doctors from ethnic minorities, an investigation has found.
UK: Ethnic doctors far less likely to reach senior posts in NHS – Health News – Health & Families – The Independent
From the article:
Health leaders called for an investigation into the figures, which the NHS Employers organisation said “added weight to concerns around discrimination” in the health service.
Black doctors were the least likely to secure consultant, specialist or trust doctor roles in 2012, according to the respected BMJ Careers journal, with a success rate of only 2.7 per cent. White candidates for the same jobs in 50 NHS trusts in England had success rates of nearly 14 per cent. Mixed ethnicity and Asian doctors were also much less likely to win senior positions than their white colleagues.
