all equal | all different | all individual

For a personal, fair and diverse service to make sure everyone counts.

The principles of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion uphold how we work. Working in our hospitals is about caring for patients. It also requires everyone to respect and value each other as colleagues. This is one of our priorities as well as improving the patient experience and care. It is everyone’s right, whether you are a member of staff, a patient or a member of the public, to be treated as an individual and treated with respect.

At its simplest, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is about treating people as individuals – considering the various and diverse needs of patients, the public and staff and striving to meet them.

Both the Trust and you as an employee have a legal responsibility to comply with anti-discrimination legislation in the provision of services we provide to patients and the public and in employment.
