Abstract: Background/Aims Previous research indicated that BAME staff are disproportionately represented in NHS disciplinary proceedings. Findings Six factors explaining this disproportionality emerged: closed culture and climate; subjective attitudes and behaviour; inconclusive disciplinary data; unfair decision making; poor disciplinary support and disciplinary policy mis-application. Methods To review the findings from part one of this two-part series and give appropriate recommendations. Conclusions Disciplinary policy needs streamlining, and greater clarity needs to be achieved regarding the difference between disciplinary, capability and performance issues. This article makes several recommendations to help reach equality in disciplinary hearings.
