With this research we aim to improve retention of NHS staff from ethnic minority groups and/or who have migrated to the UK (“minoritised groups”) by improving our understanding of how and why NHS policies and practices lead to attrition/retention in these groups and developing with NHS policy makers, staff and patients, a suite of theory-informed retention interventions.
