Equality & Inclusion in Our Employment

The Trust is committed to ensuring that no job applicant or employee is discriminated against, either directly or indirectly, on the ground of the  following protected characteristics;  age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation. In addition we do not discriminate based on social background, working patterns or trade union membership.

We are committed to promoting and championing a culture of diversity, fairness and equality for all our employees and potential employees.  We will do this by valuing and celebrating individual difference and acknowledging potential contribution to the continued development of the organisation, which will in turn improve the services we provide.

Personal, Fair and Diverse Champions

One way we promote our equality values and encourage staff to get involved is by becoming a Personal, Fair and Diverse Champion (PFD).  This encourages staff to  commit to taking action, even if this is small, to creating a Personal, Fair and Diverse NHS.

For more information about PFD champions please visit the NHS Employers website www.nhsemployers.org  or contact a member of our Workforce Management.

Part of the Trust’s commitment to Equality, Inclusion and Diversity is that we are a Two Ticks Positive About Disabled People Employer, Age Positive and a Mindful Employer.  Please see the link below for more information about being a Mindful Employer www.mindfulemployer.net
